Hi, how are you?

Back after a long break. What I bring today is a toadstool typical on dunes, seasides and other territories covered by sand, namely Psathyrella ammophila (Durieu & Lév.) P.D. Orton. Rare in my home country, Hungary, and it was the 1st time I found it in Ireland also.

Photo: taken in shutter priority exposure mode, with using my macro converter lens. On workshop photo 1 you can see the gills, while on no. 2. me doing this shot. :-)

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Hello László,
Great to see your new posting.
Very beautiful macro of these fungi in excellent sharpness, details and a very good DOF. Colours are beautiful too. Original and pleasing composition.

The Fungi growing out of the sand look quite curious, Laszlo.
Sharp focus on the one in the foreground.
The colours look really natural in this picture.

Bonsoir Laszlo,
Content de te retrouver sur TN !!!
Intéressante publication valorisant bien le sujet et bien complétée par le WS.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi dear Laszlo.
I am simply impressed with a selection of the subject. Diagonal created by two remote one from other mushrooms on a sand is stunning. Transition from free sharp FG to nicely blurred BG with cute vegetation is also splendid. Great job. TFS and best wishes.

Szia Laci!
Nagyon jó fotó.
Jól megfertőztél a gombákkal bár ritkán jut rájuk idő.
Ha az erdőbe nem jutok ki, legalább itt megnézem őket.
A szakértő segítséged egyelőre pótolhatatlan
