The sun was rising but hadn't yet crested the hills when this shot was taken.
The sun is illuminating the crest of the hill and the morning mist, while the shore remains in shadow.
Mushrooms don't normally see light coming from below, unless a photographer is there with a flashlight.
The shapes formed by the bark and the colour combination of the leaf and the bark were the subject of this shot.
Several shots needed to be stitched together to maintain focus across these three mushrooms.
I searched for a spectacular mushroom and was eventually rewarded with this.
Reflections are wonderful. I included the branch to provide some context in what is otherwise an abstract.
I've never seen so many mushrooms as on this outing. Here we have two varieties competing for the same dead tree.
