Not Always Green

Emerging Ferns, Asheville, NC  -  2014

Spring means green. Usually. For the past several weeks we've been watching the green work its way up the mountains as the trees leaf out at increasingly higher elevations day by day. As May begins, only the peaks are still bare of leaves. They'll soon be covered too.

These fern sprouts are green too, but I decided to emphasize their shapes and texture by converting my portrait of them to a black and white. Spring doesn't always have to be green, ya know!

  1. Love the textures. The leaves look like velvety brocade.
