Cortinarius violaceus
Purple Cort

This distinctive and handsome Cortinarius is easily recognized by the colour that varies from bright purple to blackish purple and the gills turn rusty as the spores mature.

Caps are 5-12 cm, convex becoming flat, with low knob, dry, covered with minute tufts, becoming shiny in age, deep violet to purplish black. Flesh is blue-grey to deep violet. Gills are attached, broad, well-spaced, deep violet. Stalks are up to 12 cm tall by 1.5 cm broad, coloured as cap. Spore prints are rust-brown. Widespread and common, this distinctive species fruits under conifers. Reported as edible, but some Cortinarius species contain the deadly toxin orellanin; so, watch it!

I already posted this beautiful mushroom HERE and HERE.

F:8 - 1/125 sec. - Manual exposure - Diffuse flash - Handheld

Dear Felipe!
This is another very good photo! I like the colours of this mushroom, DOF and POV is also very good.
Hope to see you next mushrooms soon! :)
Regards,
Radomir

Otra maravillosa macro Felipe de la viejita F717 pero siempre dando sus buenos resultados.
Los colores y texturas captados aquí son maravillosos, aunque no difieren en mucho de los exhibidos en la mayoría de tus presentaciones.
También como es de costumbre, el punto de vista captado es ideal y realzado por el apropiado encuadre.
El uso del flash le ha aportado un efecto de brillo realmente muy agradable.
A pesar del F8 límite, siempre te las arreglas para incluir la totalidad dentro del foco... no habrás tunniado (de tunning) la cámara cuando la mandaste a reparar... no?
Buen finde gente!

I never knew such gorgeous fungi existed!! Shame on me! Thank you for opening my eyes. The color and luminosity of this one is magnificent. The photo is perfect!

What a strange and beautiful fungus, Felipe and Cristina.
I have never seen anything like that, did not even know that such a mushroom can exist.
You have captured the amazing color and texture of this purple cort to perfection.
A real gem in the world of fungi.

A mí me da que todo este mundo de setas y hongos es a base de bricolaje...¡Es que hay tantas...!.

Ésta por ejemplo es una maravilla tal y como la presentan aquí. Luz, color, detalles... fantástica.

De todas maneras felicidades al/a bricolador/a, por un trabajo tan espléndido.

Hola Felipe,
Extraordinaria la nitidez y textura, se aprecia muy bien los detalles como la masa esporal color herrumbre,típica de los Cortinarios. Un cordial saludo

Hi Felipe,
I showed this to my wife with the comment, "This guy's mushroom work never ceases to amaze me." Her response back was, "Oh wow! How beautiful!"
And, it is my friend! No one does mushrooms like you!
If you ever get around to doing a book, please put me on the list for my own personal autographed copy...;-)
Always a joy to view your creativity!
Thanks,
Dave

This looks like it should belong in the bottom of the ocean. Stunning colour, wonderful details and a great POV. Lovely light as well

Otro hongo de geometría y colores rarísimos. La foto resulta muy atractiva, por la belleza del motivo y el punto de vista sesgado que realza aún más la forma tan peculiar.

Wow! What an amazing fungi. The ridges below are cut so deep and the bright orange edge very unique. A unusual species.
