Shapes of Light


I tell mushrooms a well-known story that was shared in my presentation: A gazelle must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed, and a lion must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve.
While working so hard preparing and presenting the running animals until myself had become one of them, these mushrooms saw beauty in many forms and shapes.


It is too good to be a running animal for only two weeks.
Nothing can be better than sitting by the mushrooms enjoying beautiful light that illuminates darkness.

Beautiful shapes of light! I enjoy all of your nature images, each one is special.

It's better to be able to sit and watch the mushrooms than have to be one of those fast animals, although both have their good points at times.

I would rather feel the magic of nature by sitting and communicating with the mushrooms thank you! But I love thinking about your story. If you are a gazelle, I hope you are a fast one.

The last image really is magical. I could stare at it for hours -- and then I would maybe feel as if I'd ingested some of it's hallucogenic properties (I don't know what that would feel like, but I have read stories ;>)~.

Always...your shots are amazing! but love the last shot the most and your stories always make my imagination run.

At least the mushrooms don't have to run to eat or be safe. Except I guess the slugs and snails do run faster.

Great bokeh effect in the last shot

You always find such cool images to shoot!!!

Both should run to live and eat;) Beautiful the last photo.
Good week.
a hug.

There is the joke line, the gazelle only has to run faster than you. The mushrooms don't have to fret their existence, they just have to release their tiny spores and their job is done. I somehow missed out on the mushroom I found out is edible this last season, I wanted to try some. Your light effects are fantastic!

Dramatically beautiful. In every shot, it looks like they're dancing in music of nature.

Чудові форми і кольори! Сумую за зеленню - в моєму місті зараз зима!

You weave the most wonderful tales, rainfield. I enjoy the beauty of your treks so much, especially since at my age or.. any age .. I probably couldn't have traversed your locale very easily.

Judy said...

I can't choose a favourite among these images!!! They are all so perfect!
