It's been a rather slow week, leaving for work before dawn and mostly returning when it's dark doesn't give me much chance to take any picture, although I still had some of a walk last weekend I'd like to share.
It's a park in the neighbourhood where I live, Park Vorderstein - Schoten - Belgium.

oh yes any cc is appreciated - Ronny

All are just gorgeous. What a lovely park. What kind of trees are those in the first photo?

Those are great shots Ronny, and the mushrooms are very interesting and colorful. Especially the forth shot. I am curious about the trees also.

Great sharpness on all the pictures and a very beautiful park. The colors just seem to pop out of the pictures.

Hi! Ronny

What a beautiful place. The path thru is nice. All the photos are great and well done. Very sharp, nice colors. I too, would like to know more about the trees.

In the first photo, I also noticed on the first tree to the right of the path what appears to be what we always called a tree mushroom, (funghi). There are three, two easily seen, and one right at the top of the photo, all on the left side of the tree.

Interesting that this is common all over.

Thanks for sharing your walk with us.

Jerry

Everybody thanks for the nice remarks,

The trees in the first picture are European Beech or Common Beech, they're rather common where I live, the tree itself lives in symbiosis with a fungi, not those tree fungi Jerry found, it's located in the roots.

Most park's we have originated from the property of nobility or very rich people from the 1850 to 1950. They had big (Belgian style 6kmĀ²) estates and the beech were on of their favorite ornamental trees.
