Carpet of Mushrooms

Carpet of Mushrooms // 08 01 2022

Today it was chucking it down with rain when I woke up. I decided to be productive and clean up my office. When the rain stopped I figured it was time to go out and take some photos. I put my wellies on and went to the fields near my house. On my way there there is a wooded area, and I know there had been some mushrooms there from a walk I went on over Christmas. Whilst on the lookout for the mushrooms I had seen previously, I realised that the entire floor was covered in one section with mushrooms.

I’ve decided to use my lens converter to use some of the lenses I had for my old system (Pentax) on my Fuji XT3. Todays image was shot with the 30mm f1.4. When I found the mushrooms I initially struggled to shoot them; cursing myself for leaving my macro and zoom lenses at home; as either of these would have been much better. But we can only work with what we have!

Today I went out with the photography group to Padley Gorge in the Peak District.
I had set off with a slightly different photograph in mind, but the elements were against me (I don’t like shooting out when it is sunny) so instead I tried a new way of editing.
I love being out and about and it wasn’t that busy, however I tend to go into my own zone when I’m photographing so I didn’t really speak to people that much.. :-/

There are 100 days left to go on Project 365 for this year! And on Thursday it is day 1000 of continuous shooting so I need to think what I am going to do for that…

There are not enough works to fully express how much I love the season autumn (fall). I love the changing colours, nature, the early evenings (admittingly not too early…).
This year however, autumn has started off cold and for me this means worsened pain in my knee joints. I’ve been so tired too, last night for exam I wanted to go to bed at 730. I managed to hold out until 830, then decided it was indeed bed time.

I have decided to be as pro active as possible about it; keep warm, stock up on tablets and keep on doing my exercises. It is difficult to make yourself do exercise when your joints hurt though!
