Hi Trekkers,

I already shared a photo of the orange / yellow chicken (as the common English name of the species is Chicken-of-the-woods) some months ago, please click to the image for species info. Yesterday I again managed to find some fruitbodies, this time in Glenbower Woods, a beautiful, rich forest located near Killeagh village.

Photo: taken in manual exposure mode, with manual white balance and ISO. PP: slight level adjustment, increasing contrast, re-sharpening after re-sizing.

Please also have a look at a younger fruitbody in the workshop.

Thanks for looking.

Another good quality photograph of attractive Fungi. I like such formation - keeping background bit dark object comes out nicely. Good details and well exposure. WS too...
Enjoy photography,

  • Great
