A special treat for myself: this forest!
I love the golden ferns at the foot of the black pine trees.
After the rain, when the sun is shining, the trunks are even blacker than what we see here and the contrast more intense.

Thank you for viewing.

Hi Lurdes,
This is a nice artistic shot full of color. I don't think I have ever seen golden ferns before. Nice work.

Hi Lurdes,

Excellent composition, beautifull colors and sharpness.
Details and light very nice.
Best regards.

Hi Lurdes, Beautiful golden ferns. I've never seen ferns of this color. The black of the tree trunks adds nice lines and contrast to the bright golden tones of the ferns. Interesting photo. :) Lisa

Hello, Lurdes -

Hi Lurdes, a very pleasant image with lovely lighting on the ferns

Hi Lurdes,
I've always wanted to take a photo like this! You are very lucky. The golden ferns really stand out here, such a photogenic looking place. The trees look nice and sharp, and their dark trunks seem to contrast against the bright colours down below. Fantastic shot, I'm quite envious :).

Hi Lurdes, this is so wonderful to look at. Very beautifully composed.
Regards Rose

Amazing contrast in colours! The 'blanket' of plants on the ground is a great alternative and makes the photo very special. The lighting is also very beautiful. Great work!

Its all very simple Lurdes,but I like the composition and the desolation of the place.


Ola Maria! Excellent art work. Perfect exposure. Ideal capture. Good colours, very good saturation. Superb sharpness. Splendid work. Saude!

Hi Lurdes,

I like this view of a forest, the shot has excellent composition. colors make good feeling.


Maria, GREAT capture! Reminds me of the woods of Sherwood Forest in the fall. I was looking for Robin Hood.
