This was actually my last shot of the day at Sunday's Epping Forest meet and you can see it had started to get quite wet at this point (and dark, hence the very slow shutter speed).

However, the rain was really bringing out the colours and adding a great gloss to everything.

What a great shot, lovely family shot. Are they actually growing from a fallen tree trunk ?

Yes, they were growing on a fallen trunk at about waist height (which was nice since I didn't have to lie down for this shot - unlike most others! Wink )

Wet mushrooms - that looks familiar. I admire your persistence with this shot when the weather tipped it down.

Have to say you have done an excellent job in bringing out the look and feel.

Good composition and exposure, with plenty of detail.

It was good to see you again.

Thanks for your comments.

I did try a shot underneath, but the composition did then not work and the glossy tops couldn't be seen. This angle definitely had more impact. Smile

oooh! shiny shiny!

That's a really well composed shot - and those little monkeys look so rich. Worth spending time over, in my opinion.

Nicely composed Shaun, I like how you've kept the single one in the top right in the shot.
