Single Shroom

Add Comment

This was taken this morning before the awful weather closed in. I still needed to wrap my camera in plastic bags to keep the occasional light showers off it. I think the overcast conditions helped to produce a soft, diffuse light which was just right for this delicate toadstool.

This was focussed and taken using Live view and with a cable release so there was as little vibration to the photo as possible. The Canon lens is very sharp but it still needs good technique to extract that sharpness. I can still produce OOF and shaky shots if I'm not careful.
