Jardin Botanique de MontrealNikon D60 Nikkor VR 18-105mm lens on loan from my friend Wanda for the afternoonMarch 26th 2010I was fascinated by all the shapes found in both the tropical and fern gardens.

Oh Joanne.. this makes me almost feel like I am right there skimming my hand over its fronds.. x
Lush lush lush:)
BTW: I have tried for years to photograph foliage and I can’t seem to get it right. I love this perspective as well.
Thank you so much Mary Ann, it was my first time focused on this type of foliage and ferns. My goal that afternoon was to try out manual settings and a new lens and so can’t really pass on any tips.But I was pleased with some of the outcomes as you can see! :-)
I am with Mary Ann, I have tried and tried shots like this and have never gotten them right..you did a super job on this Joanne, very beautiful detail.
Thanks Kim! Here are the specs if it helps anyone: f-32m 1/60 sec, iso 200, spot metering, at 105mm, no flash
these really are xcellent jo!
Your fern series is absolutely stunning Joanne…I love ferns and have quite a collection in my garde…the colour here is simply staggering…
