giant mushrooms

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

there was a weekend when we had a nice pale late sunshine in the beechforest here.

This big mushroom was on a fallen treetrunk. I tried to get a different perspective from the normal sight when they are like little rooves in a vertical position. People developed the skill to make fire with the help of these mushrooms. The material feels hard like wood. To get the details and shade right is not easy.

 

In this case the R macro Elmarit was on my Olympus EM 5

Interesting object, it must be very old to be so huge. Maybe it is less of a mushroom and more of a fungus?

Iduna,

 

These are remarkable mushrooms. It almost looks like something alien that fell to the earth.

Bill,

 

it was huge, but by the perspective this aspect is being emphasized more.

 

Dee,

 

you are right, in this case it is a fungus, and its assimilates to the tree in a strange unit.

 

Brent,

 

it makes me happy that you mentioned the details. Since the object was big it was not easy to cover all by proper sharpness. Thanks for your inspection.

 

Paul,

 

yes, these shapes and material are strange and these "appearances'" are very attractive. This research will be continued. Thanks for your nice support.

Iduna, beautiful. They have different names in different parts of the country and are frequently collected, painted with scenes and sold as arts. Supposedly edible, my mycology professor had to try it once. It tasted like sawdust and old socks.

Karl,

 

enjoy your meal of fungus... - They are hard and feel like wood, so I can imagine it looks nice serving as raw material arts & craft products. Many thanks for your comment.
