Unfurling Fern Frond

Say that three times quickly – I’ll bet you’ll laugh.

This particular frond sprouts very quickly and is silky to the touch.

When it is fully open it becomes hard and sharp to the touch.

It is a fantastic plant to photograph,because of all the different angles it provides.If you want to practise Macro or close up photography – it makes a great model for Depth of Field and Aperture selection.

All Monochromes aren’t Black & White.This fern has a Blue tint.,where the Cactus flower is straight Black with White.

I find the other factor influencing the tonal range, is what the original colour was before processing.This can be varied in the development stage, but why fool with Nature’s perfection?
