Default Some Fungi from the Trail

It was far too clear and contrasty for any fall colors shooting today, so I went for a walk down some trails in the local forest preserve, and found a few fungi out and about following our plentiful rain of late. All shot with EPL1 and either the kit lens or the Vivitar Series 1 105mm f2.5 macro.

1.


2.


3.


4.


5.


Thanks for looking.

Hi Dustin

I like the capture, and particularly:
#2 - for the simplicity and the bits of dirt / bark sticking to it. (not sure if the dark vertical twig and part of lighter (broken) stick are a bit distracting due to high contrast). But the clarity & exposure on this mushroom is awesome!
#4 - the colours and dof on this one make it a winner for me too.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul

Nice job, Dustin. Most people would have past them right by with much notice.

thank you simple. congrats on the bike, there are always things to shoot beside the forest trail, look forward to seeing what you find and no, i am guessing its probably not wise to eat random shrooms on the trail :P

thanks paul for the detailed comments, glad you enjoyed these 2. regarding the twigs i probably could have moved them and cleaned up the area around the mushroom, but i always debate between setting up the perfect shot vs just shooting what nature throws out there, i guess i could have done 1 of each.
