Another photograph I made this Fall at Silver Lake Provincial Park in the Skagit Valley near Hope, British Columbia. I was fortunate on both of my trips here last Fall to have a near perfect reflection on the lake – I only wish I’d had even more hours of light to work with all the possibilities!
While failing to find good Fall colours this year I did manage to find a lot of great mushrooms. The trouble is, I have a hard time identifying them. I am great with native plants (Washington State and British Columbia), but just awful with Fungi. I do think this group can be narrowed down to the Genus Mycena (which contains over 500 species). Experts tell me for real identification I’d need detailed photos of the underside and perhaps even spores to look at under the microscope! Drives me nuts not to have a species pinned down, but I think I’m going to have to let it go this time!
For this photo I tried a few angles but concluded the only way to get a nice shot would be to lay down on the ground – and it worked!
I have put together some of my favourite images made in the last year into this 11"x17" (28cm x 43cm) nature calendar. Included are 12 photographs of landscape and nature scenes from British Columbia and Washington State.
I am a landscape and nature photographer based in Langley, British Columbia, Canada. Most of my subjects are in Southwestern British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest's Washington State. My photography is available for licensing as stock, fine art prints, and giclée canvas wraps.
