We had tons of rain during our trip in late September, so when the photo ops were limited due to gray blah skies, I went behind camp. There were all sorts of interesting mushrooms to shoot... here are a couple. We were camped on Lake Agnes in BWCA.

I'm glad that you didn't let the the gray skies and damp days stop you from looking for pictures. Nice orange cluster in that first pic and good use of shallow depth of field and background bokeh in the 2nd. I like looking for interesting fungi and lichen. Here are some trumpet lichen from Sunday Lake in Quetico.

Gary I will help keep the thread going if you will...love to trade shots on any subject and hopefully others will chime in.

Lots of great shots everyone! Ausable... love the little red highlights on the trumpet lichen. Lindy, the red sumac really pops... the dusting of snow gives it a nice touch too. Banksiana, where was that taken... very nice grand landscape!

Now what shall I post next? Think I'll go with a critter... here is a mink taken near a portage to Ima Lake.

(This one is a combination of elements of two separate photos that I combined because I thought they just went well together!!)


Gary, you are right on that. Whenever I am out in the woods I keep a wary eye out for mushrooms, etc.. I literally have hundreds of shots of them, these are just random ones I found quickly. Looks like ausable and Cowdoc are there with us:)

Cowdoc, where did you find that fungus and do you know the name? In my copy of "The Mushroom Hunter's Field Guide" it looks similar to Ramaria Subbotrytis (Rose Coral). It is gorgeous.
 
12/12/2018 05:42PM
It was along a portage on the Falls Chain. I've always just called it Coral Fungus.

Love it, great shots all! Imagine we will exhaust our mushroom shots by April or so and move on to another subject!! :)

Gary, a very disciplined approach - mine are mostly hand held or perhaps monopod. Not bragging at all, you are doing the right thing. I just don't have the discipline.

Cowdoc, our "Tall One" shots are very similar. Probably both had to dust off our bellies after those shots...haha.

WOW, what great photos this month!I thought I had taken some great mink shots, but Gary and Lindy, WOW! And Saganaga Joe, I love those PNW pics, keep them coming! That shot in the Olympics is spectacular! When I was 15, my step father took me out west for the first time to visit a friend in Wenatchee, Washington. We went to Yellowstone from there but also had a few day hikes in the Cascades near Leavenworth, WA. Always thought I'd make it back there one day, and make it up north to the Olympics too, but it's 43 years later....

So here's a pic, one of my all-time favorites that I've taken; I feel like I need to "Hit you with my best shot" (LOL) after all these superb photos! Lower falls of the Yellowstone after a dusting of September snow:

I don't have much time at all in the mountains so my options are pretty limited. This is one of a few I have, taken in Smoky Mountains National Park.
 
12/13/2018 09:43AM
Here are three images captured on an October afternoon on our former property near Mio, MI. The first two may be of Amanita muscaria "Fly mushroom". The third is a cluster of what may be Inocybe pudica. Whatever they are, the important thing is that I thought they were pretty.

I must say I had no idea just how many mushroom/fungi shots I have. Nor did I remember how many different varieties, shapes, sizes and colors they come in. I'm ready to move on to another topic anytime but this sure is fun.







































I apologize, not trying to take over the thread. Just having fun looking back, and getting excited for next year's shots:)

Had to include this one just because of the sheer size of the mushroom - probably the biggest I have seen. Comparable to the diameter of a large Frisbee, I included the hand in the shot for a point of reference.

If you enjoy mushroom/fungi photography I highly recommend Crosby Manitou State Park. Great for a daytrip or a backpack camping trip of several days as we did. I fondly call it Crosby Mushroom State Park, i have never seen so many and so much variety. The mink with the frog legs was also shot there and it offers beautiful forest, river and waterfalls to boot.

In the early years, we saw lots of gray jays every trip... they were really aggresive about stealing food off our plates. Then from the 1990s - 2010 we saw very few. Now we are seeing them again most every trip... nice to have them back! This from our 2018 fall trip... shot with 70-200mm at 200mm

Lindy - great cedar waxwing shot!
Banksiana - nice shot... amazing how fast those gray jays can be. I'll bet I have 20 shots where they flew in the middle of the exposure.
Terry - nice to hear from you... the Current River looks like it is moving pretty good.

These red squirrels are at virtually every camp, but I still love shooting them.

Since my eyes and brain see horizontal, shooting verticals does not come naturally to me. Every trip I tell myself to shoot more veriticals, but seldom do.

Perfect subject for a vertical. Your eye is drawn up (and down) the trees, and, after not reaching their tops, bounces back and forth between the two suns before finally turning to the focal point on the horizon. Beautiful.

Member of the bwca.com Fungus Club, now that's a resume enhancer! :-)
BTW, nice shots!"


Well thanks for the compliment, but I'm just a picture taker....YOU are a PHOTOGRAPHER!

Have to agree, Gary's talent is quite evident, although you do quite well too ozark(and the others that have posted).
As long as we're having fun doing it...

Thanks guys, I do take lots of photos when I go up north... typically 3000 per trip. But most of those I wouldn't want to share :-) One reason I take so many is because I often bracket exposure levels to give me more flexibility when I am home processing.

Lindy, great shot of the bumblebee... beautiful color and composition! I have also chased the bees and butterflies around the prairie here in Iowa. It is definitely a low percentage endeavor... I get one keeper in every 50 shots or so since they move so fast. I usually use my 100-400mm zoom (handheld) with the shutter speed set really high.

Ahhh, well then let's have some Bees! The first is not out of focus, it's the reason we sneeze around flowers! Note the copius amount of pollen:






And here at the hive is the factory for the fruits of their labors in the pollen:

Along with mushrooms, birds, flowers, landscapes and sunrises/sunsets, insect photography is another thing I really enjoy. The detail that you can see in a good shot is really incredible.

Old growth tree (probably 400 years old) in the Quinault Rainforest in Olympic National Park.

Beautiful shot and area... looks like it is begging for canoe to be launched into it!

Hyas Lake would be a good canoeing lake! This is Jade Lake, at a much higher elevation (5400 feet) on the same hiking trip. Quite possibly one of the most beautiful spots I've ever visited or will visit.

100 posts, mighty impressive!
Here are some camp site shots from this years trips...

Great shots Joe, I envy your opportunity to see such incredible places and your ability to capture them so wonderfully.

Gary, nice camp shots, you seem to be able to take your shots to the next level.

Great job everyone, getting to 100 posts. The totals for the three previous months were 3, 5 and 6! Wondering if we can keep it going? I am certainly enjoying seeing all of your great photos and posting relevant ones as well. For those of us that have made it this far, i suspect photography is a passion, I know it is for me.

Stunning. Is the Ogish campsite on the island?

That shot is from the northeastmost site... it is in the burn area (barely) but this campsite wasn't touched.

Ogish island site... near Mueller Lake portage
