Fungi (gallery)

Being a keen forager of wild foods with an interest in mycology it has been great to spend some quiet time taking images of some of the fungus in Glyndebourne Wood in East Sussex. They seem particularly prolific this year and it was a good way to become acquainted with the Meyer Optik Görlitz Orestor 2.8/100 which I recently acquired after a year of seeking one in good condition at a reasonable price.

For these images the lens was mounted on my Fujifilm XT-2 using a Zhongyi Lens Turbo II focal reducer or a helicoid adaptor to allow closer focussing.

While focussing on the fungi themselves I wanted to capture some of the dim damp atmosphere of the woodland they stood in and retain a feeling of the space around them.
