Ferns growing along the trail - Infrared Photography

I enjoy seeing patches of Ferns, something about them under the tree canopies seemingly happy as they can get. These Ferns were growing in a patch a few yards long.

Where the Ferns were growing it was just them, seemingly to dominate the landscape where it grows.


Though where the walking trail started the Ferns stopped, I guess getting walked on all the time stops their growth. I wonder how quick they would fill in if people stopped walking through this trail. Maybe a month im guessing it would all fill in.


Even with the dense tree canopies, the sky could be seen through little patches above. The light coming through giving plants a filtered sunlight appearance.


Some areas of the trail the plants really want to take back the space. You got to be careful around these plants as ticks will hang off the sides and cling to whatever passes by. Ugh.. I hate it.


The creek was flowing along the trail, with the filtered sunlight coming through the tree canopy it gives the water a golden color.


A log that fell across the water, though was not blocking the flow. I think if I had to cross with a canoe or kayak it may be difficult.
