Mushroom Photos


Cyrptotrama aspartum, one of Australia’s most striking fungi

My interest in Australian fungi became serious when I started taking Photos of them. Above is probably the shot that started my obsession, still one of my favorite mushroom photos, its been my desktop image for years now. A range of my photos are on flickr and can be found on the link below, the quality is not great on some and I have never gotten into focus stacking or some of the other hitek tools photogs use to get depth of field. I guess the interesting thing is the shear variety of fungi seen in one area, almost all the photos are taken in the Kalang valley, near Bellingen in NSW. Enjoy.
