Mushroom Season

  • October 30, 2020

October in the UK sees the return of cooler, wetter weather and is the peak time for photographing mushrooms. Whether in the parks or just the garden, there is a huge variety of funghi and here a few that I found.

With it's deep red colouring and white flecks, the 'Fly Agaric' or Amanita Muscaria mushroom is one of the most iconic toadstool species growing wild in the UK.

Younger specimins tend to have rounder heads and less imperfections so make great subjects.

I found a few places within Walton Colliery Nature park where there are concentrations of Fly Agaric of all shapes and sizes.

I spent a gloriously sunny day at Yorkshire Wildlife park on a photography workshop with Pandora Maund and Kate Campbell from Going Digital. To add to the experience I also hired a Sigma 150-600mm lens. The results were outstanding!
