Another shot from Warburg. Spent a great day with Dave Newton - onewildworld looking for fungi. I was trying something a bit different with this - going for something a bit more arty. I used a long lens to isolate the subject. Whilst I was setting up the shot, it was getting darker and darker. By the time I took the shot, there was a full blown thunderstorm over head and Dave and I had to run for cover under the beeches.

I know it's dark - it's intentional!

2.5 s f5 160mm with 31mm extension tube.

That works even better here than it did on the back of the camera. Love the different and dark approach - makes for something much more visually interesting.
Not totally convinced about the horizontal shape but can see why you've done it. Would like to see a vertical so you get an impression of where they're coming from, even though it'd be dark.

Don't Beeches make a wonderful rain canopy?! Smile

Took me a while...and boy will this suffer thumbnailitis....but then I imagined it in print with the detail of the water...and it made sense to me.

Superb - different and inreasingly abstract in style.

I like what you are trying to achieve in this, I may have shaved a tad off the bottom as I cant see any detail there but if there is then I would leave it.

Seriously. You do come out with some unusual stuff. I'd like a little more light on the stems. But, that's just me.

I love the way they emerge out of the dark. Hope you're well.

Thanks for all the comments. I'm very well - better than I have been for a long while! It's now hanging on the wall and I'm very happy with it. I have a portrait shot including a bit of forest floor but it's just says 'seen it before' . . .

On my monitor the stalks are just visible, which makes it work really well. I agree with Dave that it could be even better in portrait orientation.

Good to see you back at last.

Well done for taking a different approach with these fungi. I think it would work well in a square format too.

Hope to see some more of your fungi shots later in the season.

Ooooh, delightful!

Guess how many shrooms Dougie and I found on Sun aft!!!? Millions! (perhaps a slight exaggeration.)

Was good to catch up, thanks for helping me shroom hunting!
