Upright Ferns

Some of the ferns that were making their appearance along the rail trail on Saturday were visually interesting. The problem was in striking a balance between fine detail and getting good composition.  For the most part, this meant a departure from the usual horizontal layout that I've preferred to shoot.  As you can see below, horizontal would not have worked:

This fern seems to be a different species from the one above.  It's slightly past the fiddlehead stage, but it still has this whitish fuzz holding the fronds together.  Very alien looking.
