Marble wall and ferns
White marble and maidenhair ferns mixed with horsetail ferns photographed in April in a side canyon of Saline Valley. Sweet light bouncing from the opposite wall softens the shadows and enriches the greens. I was attracted to the smooth and rounded surfaces of this very hard rock, caused by centuries of flowing high water from season to season. Opposing forces make for elegant results over time.
