[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The weather has been cold and wet for several weeks now,so there hasn't been much to photograph .... in fact,I've been stuck to my CPU for some time now.
I've been quite busy on Facebook as som of you might have noticed.If you haven't,check out my photos and music there:My Facebook Profile
This is a shot I took just over a month ago on a day trip to Lake Brunner & the Arnold River at Moana.
The ground was icy around the lake edge,and these frozen fungi were among the few I found that day.
I'm not sure what they are,but thought they warranted a post anyway.

I hope you like them.
Thanks for looking.

Hallo Steve
It is real good to see you back, and you tiptoe into the gallery with such a great image. Upon opening the thumbnail it felt if I was opening a jewelry box with treasures. Nature’s own bling-bling presented is such a delightful way. I just love the lining of ice crystals on the edges of this fungi, and the texture of the fungi itself is so beautiful to look at. Thanks for sharing these few pieces of gems. Best regards.

A very icy look and the darkness still looms in the area. But you give a nice shot of the white fungi in the row.

Hola Steve.
Nice to see You back My friend. Looks like You have lot of moisture in Your beautiful county all the time. Here is very very dry, and almost imposible to find mushrooms

Hello Steeve,
A very nice photo, the icy fungi are coming out very well and very sharp on a dark BG
Well done

hi Steve,

nice shot from this frozen fungi.
good pov with fine natural colours.


Hi Steve,
Just came home from my holiday vacation spent near Lake Balaton. Weather's quite warm and sunny these times here, so it's quite interesting to see frozen fungi during our summer (which is Your winter, by the way). Nice pic.
I hope everything goes well with You, friendly greetings from Hungary, László

Hey Esteve!

How well you've come back! ... I hope you're well friend ... this picture is a strange case, it comes as quite common, a fungus frozen! ... capture the proper angle, and as always, conveys much of the environment and climate. Esteve, Good work!
