Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


Today I’ve been walking around in the Amsterdamse Bos. Loads of mushrooms have popped up in just the last couple of weeks! I don’t like to eat mushrooms, but I do think they’re cute to look at. Especially the really tiny ones!

(If you disagree, you should probably stay away from this blog for a week or so..Β  More mushroom pictures coming up.)

Both pictures: f/2.8 – 1/60 – ISO 500 – 60

  2. What a lovely fairyland of mushrooms! The background is stunning with my favorite color setting off the mushrooms perfectly. You have even captured a droplet of water. Lovely!

  4. Nice detailed photos with a pleasing soft light. I do like mushroom photos and eat mushrooms but do not collect them as I don’t trust my identification capabilities.

    • Thank you, Carlos! FYI, the ones in this post are a kind of Mycena- not edible.

  11. Love Funghi and mushrooms – I love them stir-fried with a little salt and a lot of freshly grained pepper :). Lovely pictures.
