Natural landscapes: a mushroom moment
SPRING MUSHROOMS, PRESQUILE PROVINCIAL PARK, ONTARIO
I didn’t realize mushrooms grew in spring…always thought they were a late summer-autumn thing. So it was a nice surprise to encounter these beauties amongst a sea of spring green on a cloudy morning in this park along the shores of Lake Ontario.
A shallow depth of field was important here, to ensure the background would complement, rather than compete, with the main point of interest. Photographed on slide film with Nikon FM2 camera and tripod, then scanned onto a CD.

Great job with the DOF. Just enough with out a complete blur. I like the diagonal angle of the log too.
Thanks, pal. Didn’t expect to see mushrooms so early in the season, but I’ll take ’em! 🙂
