More ‘shrooms

Things have finally settled down somewhat, so I headed off for some more fungi therapy deep down in the local valley’s rivulet before work – literally in my neighbors backyard. (Weirdly, access to kunanyi / Mt Wellington Park is currently closed due to the virus – Why?).

Although we’ve had some rain lately, it was still quite dry with very little flow in the creek.

I spent about 1.5 hours pottering around and probably covered only 100 metres, examining every log and nook. While moving forward can be a challenge some times, it’s a great place to explore with lots of fossils in big slabs of rock and of course … FUNGI!

This group of little bright white parasol’s caught my eye first. I’ve been experimenting with my camera’s focus stack settings, mainly reducing the step distance as I noticed the odd patch of blurriness in some previous images. This does however reduce the overall depth of field in the final stack though.

A group of larger brown ones covered in cobwebs growing from moss on a log.

This tiny blue one was smaller than a match head! Possibly a young Mycena interrupta – which is the main fungi I was hoping to find, however I did not see any others.

And finally before having to rush of into a day’s work, this beautiful green and gold bursting forth from soil trapped in a tree trunk.

  1. Hi! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted
    to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading through your articles.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that deal
    with the same topics? Thank you so much!


    1. Hi and thanks for your comment and encouragement, much appreciated.
      I love photography so just blog what I find interesting and stuff I use, hoping it might inspire or help someone, but mostly as an outlet for my creativity rather than it just gathering dust on my hard drive 🙂 I still use flickr (fantastic community) but not as often since recent changes and this blog lets me tell more of a story with a series of images rather than separate ones.
      I look at the WordPress Reader section every few days and follow “Photos”, “Photography” and “Tasmania” to find similar content and local sites.
      Another platform worth checking out is Deviant Art. I began a site there under “edgetas” before I decided to rebrand everything to TasView.
