Shroom Falls

By ColouredImages    
An early start this morning to ensure I had this wonderful location to my self....success

Got some crackers and was chuffed to find these shrooms which made a lovely composition. The light was kind which showed off all the greens to their best.

Was joined briefly by a mink before another photographer turned up just as I was finishing off. We exchanged pleasantries and I am now armed with another "secret" falls thanks to him. Unfortunately we didn't exchange names...but thanks to him anyway. I look forward to finding the new gem

A place of ‘delicious solitude’ for ‘green thought in a green shade’.

Magical looking location and capture.

Looks like a rain forest setting. We have many places similar to this here in coastal B.C. Canada. Seems 18mm at f16 is ideal for this so a setting I will remember. Excellent image and composition. TG
