The trees and plants help to define a place. New Zealand has a lot of unique and beautiful foliage: the famous pohutakawa, kauri and fern trees and the smaller plants as well.
I love the emerging and unfurling of the ferns in spring time.
I took these pictures when I was in my first photography class. The assignment was to pay special attention to different kinds of light. These ferns were cast into shadow by midday light reflecting off of the grass.
