Dear Trekkers,

Another photo of my trip to Fota Arboretum 2 weeks ago, this time about the huge fern Dicksonia antarctica, which is native to Australia. I was simply embraced by its beauty, if I can say something like this at all, this species became one of my favourites in the arboretum. See the full "tree-fern" in the workshop.

Photo: done in the Fota Arboretum, near Carrigtohill, Co. Cork, Ireland, in shutter priority mode. PP: moderate cropping, level adjustment, after re-sizing selective sharpening.

Hi Laszlo.
It is an attractive subject and nicely composed shot. I like how well you have reproduced the shapes of the brands and leaves against clear blue sky. Details of the image is exceptional too. Warm regards and kind wishes and many thanks for encouragement of my participation here.
Yours Alexei.

Hello Laszlo,
An very extraordinary composition showing me as a learner how to approach the final product with success!! We have a similar plant in South Africa called the "Tree Fern". You portrait this plant's leave against the pure blue sky perfectly. Excellent work my friend.
Best regards,

Dear Laszlo,
strikingly clear and powerful graphical presentation of this huge fern that seems to have found a good place in Ireland! Same as you, as it seems. Good to see your images of Ireland's silent beauties my friend. With all my best wishes to you,

P.S.: Thank you for visiting that tropical Cuban butterfly a few weeks ago in my gallery. A pleasure to read your freindly comments. Have been away from computer desks for quite a while - summertime is keeping us busy outdoors.

Hello László.

Congratulation for this interesting post. Usually we think that "tree-ferns" areas are in tropical or equatorial climate ; you shows us that this is not always the case.

Nice point of view showing us how the fronds are disposed. Good composition of the capture filling properly the frame. Sharpness and depth of field properly managed. Nice blue background.

Congratulation for the picture.

See you later.
