Another photo, another specie from my trip to the Southern Bükk (ca. 60-70 kilometers from my hometown): Mycena renati. It's a frequent specie, growing in colonies on dead trees.

Photo was taken in a very special and unique place named "Stone Valley", near the village of Cserépváralja. Bükk mountains is mostly built up from limestone, but there was a couple of smaller volcanos here in the myocene era, so in and around this valley everything (stones, ground etc.) is very different than the majority of Bükk.

No serious PP at all, but I hope You like the image this way. Thanx for stopping by and commenting.

Almost fairy tale like stuff here, the POV is spot on with focus/blur in all the right places.
Spot on.


Hi Laszlo,
I like the color and light.
For the composition only you deserve 10 points from me.

Hello Laszlo,
This little colony is well depicted, as the point of view works well to show the details!
Interesting light, and the mushrooms have great details and fine natural colours...
A well balanced composition!

Hi my dear Laszlo ,
Very nice shot.
Another great photo from you.excellent light and details.
nice composition.

Kind regards

I definately like the same kind of fungi artistic photos that you like, MF. Great use of available light on this one.
Have you ever tryed to use a paper handkerchief (or similar white surface) as a reflector? I thik in this case it would have added just the bit of light to get the one on the left out of the total darkness :)
Nevertheless it is very lovely this way too.
Regards, Felipe.
