`Shroombrella

 

summer break’s over, it’s good to be back !

this nameless toadstool was hiding out on top of a log that had fallen, suspended over a wee brook i recently discovered in la Montagne Noire in Aude, France. it’s a gorgeous area that draws me back, the kind of order i’ll mindlessly obey.

light levels where very low, combine that with my super-wide angle 7.5mm 180° lens that has its own particular sense of colour rendition/image resolution, the image distortion expected from this type of lens and we get this lovely fungi in a somewhat painterly interpretation.

the pink and purple hues are as close to what my mind’s eye remembers: absolutely stunning.
