The fern is often used as a symbol of New Zealand. This example was taken near Rotorua, and I've played about with it to try to bring out the textures and patterns against a dark background. In its NZ role, it is usually represented as silver or white on black, so I'll put up a b&w version, although I do think the colour adds something.
Many thanks to those who commented or voted on Heaven And Earth, and particularly to Ian, Ollie and Alfie for their generous awards (PMs sent).
Thanks for looking,

I think the colour version is more symbolic as the mono tends to be a bit pale in comparison.

The vibrancy of the colours in the original appeal more - despite my penchant for all things b&wWink

Really nice A;;an, and I like the dappled shadows across the leaves.
While I like mono images, it has to be the colour for me here.

Very fine image, ferns are wonderful. When curled up they show perfect Fibbonaci spirals too 🙂 great symbols they are.
