Maybe its because of the unusual weather we had this year with the lovely long dry spell followed by a more typical sogginess that I have never seen so many mushrooms before in the local woods. So much so that I’ve been carrying a Collins Guide to Mushrooms whenever I’ve been out walking the dogs lately. Obviously a printed version, no iPhone apps or Google searches for me, analogue all the way! Even so, I haven’t been confident enough to pick a few and bring them home for dinner yet. As tasty as some of them look I’m still struggling to distinguish my chanterelles from my cockleshells.
For the time being I’m content to just take a few photos of them while I’m out and about. These photos were taken over a couple of days with my Nikon FM2 with a 60mm macro lens attached. I used one roll of expired Fuji Sensia100 slide film and cross processed it which is what gives the colours that warm autumnal feel.
