Allentown Rose Garden. Allentown, Pennsylvania. Technical details: YashicaMat 124G medium format twin lens reflex film camera with Yashinon F3.5 taking lens. Kodak Tmax 400 film shot at ISO 400. Semi-stand development using Kodak HC-110 1+100 dilution for 1 hour with 30 seconds initial agitation with swizzle stick and three turns @ 30 minute mark. Paterson 3 reel tank. Negative scanned with Epson 4990 on holders fitted with ANR glass.

Amid all of the wet green of the Hoh, there were numerous pockets of these red ferns. A lot of speculation was made over whether or not these ferns were turning color in the fall, or whether or not they were just red ferns. I still have no idea, though it is worth noting that there were many, many green ferns, so fall color doesn’t seem that logical. 

Either way, it added nice diversity to the sea of endless green.
