Peculiar Life

Toadstool 4

Tread carefully as you walk the woodland paths, as you seek the peculiar life emerging from the earth’s fertile darkness. See them stand proud and defiant in the new day’s light, each embracing their opportunity to shine.

Toadstools are definitely one of my favourite things to photograph, and this August has been great for them. They seem to have flourished in the warm and wet English summertime we’ve been been having. Here are a few more pictures that I’ve taken.

The photos were all taken in the meadow and wooded area of my old village – which is still my favourite place to spend a few peaceful hours enjoying the natural world. Despite not living there any more, I’ve driven out for a number of dawn walks this month. I just can’t stay away!

    • Thanks, Ali. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to say a permanent ‘goodbye’ to the meadow!

    • Thanks, Jeanne. I’ve actually been thinking about sorting through my pictures and putting some up for sale as prints, so it’s nice for you to say they’re good enough. 🙂
