Happy Mothers’ Day to you all

We had our Mothers’ Day a few weeks ago here in England, but I know that it is celebrated today in various other parts of the world.

I walked in the woods this afternoon, and the ferns are pushing their way up throught the undergrowth. It was quite dark in the deeper part of the woods, and I obviously had my shutter speed set too fast (1/400th sec with ISO 800). However, as it turned out, my attempt at photographing a fern at this speed resulted in a “happy accident” as you’ll see.

No Photoshop needed here – just colour correction resulted in this rather ethereal picture.

So I’ll dedicate it to all the Mums out there … because it’s pretty … and Mums could always appreciate pretty 🙂
