The first one is really good. I took one like this, years ago, in the Olympia National Forest, near Seattle. It's the only rain forest in North America, and very strange. Everything there is huge. The weeds are familiar ones, but gigantic, the trees are tall, and there are bright yellow slugs the size of a banana. You almost expect to see a dinosaur come lurching out of the trees.

On a hike, I found a place below a hole in the canopy, and a brilliant spot of sunlight on ferns that turned them luminous green. I have never again seen anything like it, but your shot comes close.

With the metallic luster shining on their edged leaves, #2 and #3 look like patterns of fer forger, the latter of which is my fave ; )

Cheers!

Thank you, Goldwinger. Agree on the light but i suppose there are photographers lugging around with heavy lighting equipment. Suppose natural light is more authentical

Like your picture. It is like a piece of the forest floor (excellent expression, b.), serving as a stage, is hit by a spotlight. Then you can see another patch, leading to another and another. Finally, when you are completely lost, you'll find your own spot

Was hiking once in a northern high mountain area, with maps and compass. 28 kilograms backpacked. Heavy in the rain. Suddenly the sun broke through with great force, giving light to a square meter of the ground. Some thousands of a second after the sun had hit, a grouse flew up, making it a spectacular scene. Have the picture in my mind

Should have had a camera, of course. Ricoh has a very rugged camera used in deep mines and other not so welcoming areas

Thanks, bahadir. Never thought of the ressemblance. You cannot but admire the craftsmen who after many years of training can create such masterpieces

Certainly, bahadir, in these surroundings. Thanks for the added picture. Picking another fern image from my fern folder, posting it outside the triptych.
