This is something quite magical about tiny fungus suddenly appearing in the lawn. To photograph them, I have to place myself on the cold, damp earth in which they thrive. I’m transported to a miniature world where I see the taken for granted with fresh eyes.

I’ve edited these shots to reflect that slightly other-worldly feeling.

  1. Wonderful shots and edits, Su! I can picture you lying on the damp cold ground, searching for the perfect angle. The hardships photographers have to endure! πŸ˜‰ Most of the shots I do that are worth looking at are almost always done when I lie on the ground as well! Which is why I avoid to do this in winter πŸ˜€ xxxxxxx

    • Thanks Sarah. I would definitely be less keen to lie on the ground in your winter. We get lots of rain, but not really very cold temperatures. And at least in winter, I don’t have the same pollen allergies πŸ™‚
