Amanita muscaria #2

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 24 October 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Amanita muscaria (Vliegenzwam (BE) / Fly agaric (EN) / Fliegenpilz (DE) / Amanite tue-mouches (FR)). (More info on the species: see yesterdays portrait). Today a more "abstract" way of photographing this spiecies. The sunlight reflected on the cap of the specimen in the front, providing a red/orange light at the gills of the upper-specimen. Colors of autumn !

@Veronique: Two different ways of making images out of a mushroom ... The first is for determination, this one is more interesting as an image. Tomorrow still a more abstract out of the species :-) Greetz !!!

@Marilla: Thanks, Marilla. I worked on this shot a long time in the field to get it right but enjoyed the warm sunlight in the meantime so ... it was a worthy afternoon :-)

Marleen from Doesburg, Netherlands

Dit is zo'n opname waarvan ik denk: 5*! Prachtig de gebogen lijnen van de lamellen en geweldige DoF en belichting!
Schitterende creatieve weergave!

24 Oct 2010 6:39pm

@Marleen: Dank voor de sterretjes, Marleen. Ik was zelf heel erg aangetrokken door het reflecterende licht op de lamellen waardoor ze een bijna rode schijn krijgen. Maak er een fijne week van. Groetjes !

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, United States

@Loner: Personaly I think this one is a better image than yesterdays" "spotlight" - but maybe yesterdays was more "recognizable" ...

Dutçh from Chicagoland, United States

Very soft.. a fragile feel added with the glowing light.

27 Oct 2010 1:05am

@Dutçh: A different approach to the subject ... Change the setting, change the eye, change the feeling ... :-) Thanks, Kristen.

Laurent from near Lyon, France

superbly composed.
The light is beautiful and the shallow DOF is just perfect.

"Awe struck, mouth - wide open, eyes - wide open, mind - lost in the world of macros" this is me in general when seeing this photograph. Amazing details in this macro shot. Superbly done.
