I'm quite certain that my current Macro Mushroom fascination is the best thing that has resulted from my photography so far this year. The process of scouring the forest floor for these tiny organisms and photographing them is utterly addicting! The cap of this fungus reminded me of the shape of a Witches Hat, poking out of a mossy tree stump. The addition of a warm LED light to this scene resulted in soft pink and purple tones on the cap, creating a dream-like feel. As I look at this image, I almost expect this fungus to move in some way! It is such a wonderful feeling to be able to capture such fleeting nature and I hope to experience more magical fungi moments this Autumn.
