Magic mushroom

Magic mushroom

I have no idea as what magic mashroom this is, but it looks like Psilocybe mexicana a psychedelic mushroom. Its first known usage was by the natives of North and Central America over 2,000 years ago.

We did not pick them up, they ended up being cut down by the lawnmower.

I just took photos necaused they looked great, like from a story book.

Droplets

As I stated in my 52 Frames post, that I would post a separate post about droplets. Here it is.

I love photographing them, most of them are not worth the digital space they take and sometimes I am lucky and I am happy with them and share them. As you have guessed, I am happy how these turned out. Minimalist, simple and green.

This photo was taken along the Great Ocean road in Victoria, Australia at one of the beautiful oceans and cliff views, I have so totally forgot what was what place, but all of them were breathtakingly beautiful. Lets appreciate the beauty and forget my lack of memory 😉

Lets Be Wild – Spring!

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggersThis week’s Challenge is: Spring!

These are the colors of spring… yellow, green and white. Impatiently waiting for them.

This morning the temperature was -21C, so no spring for us yet.

The first signs are  dandelions popping up, the new light green of  the grass and the whiteness of cow parsley growing by the sidewalks
