Artist's Description

The light was right. The shapes were right. The contrast was right. All I had to do was stop and take the shot. (508 views on 9 November 2013)

We were deep down a shady pathway at the Botanical Gardens in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales during the 2012 Easter weekend when I spotted this beautiful sight. Yes, it was indeed deeply shaded, but a brilliant shaft of light streaming through the thick canopy above us caught this fern in a way that brought me to a complete standstill.

The thing that really struck me, though, was the number of people who passed by without even looking up to admire the fronds, so intent were they on keeping to the narrow pathways.
