Fiddleheads on Hodge Pond  

Catskill Mountains, New York:  We found these fiddlehead ferns one early, foggy Spring morning while hiking to Hodge Pond.  I like the etherial quality of the scene. This photo was recently a Nature Category winner in the 2011 NYS DEC "Celebrating New York's Forests" Photography Contest. It also won an award during a juried photography show sponsored by the North Country Arts Center, Crandall Library, Glens Falls, NY.
