Unfolding Season

I have taken a shot (several actually) like this almost every spring. Compare to 4/15/2009 which are actually images taken on 5/19/2008. It does not matter. I find the emerging forms and the coiled potential irresistible.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent and Super-macro. The fiddlehead was actually  inside my lens hood. F2.8 @ 1/160th @ ISO 160. Programmed auto.

In Lightroom, Recovery for the background. Fill Light for the fern. Blackpoint just slightly right. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset. Cropped for composition.
