Dying Fern Macro, Newfoundland, PA

Last month, I went up to my grandparents house in the Poconos to visit them. They have a nice waterfall about 20 feet tall within a mile and a half walk from their house. I received a handheld GPS unit from my parents for my birthday, so I decided to map out the trip with it. Right in the beginning of the hike, I noticed that the ferns in the area were starting to die out, making them a nice light brown color. I love photographing ferns because of the patterns their leaves make. I found the fern shown below in a spot of sun that made it through the tree canopy, highlighting it nicely and causing the background to darken.
