We should have got pictures of them getting in the tree!!!


Thanks to our friend and photographer, Barry Moses for tolerating all of our sillyness during this photo shoot at our local private university ~ Whitworth. These pictures were taken during Matthew's post army visit in Spokane. We had a lot of fun even though it was kind of thrown together at the last minute. Thanks to my kids too for tolerating all of the "creativity."

Micro-Scapes: Mushrooms

Mushrooms were a curiosity during a recent visit to Priest Lake. We were there for a women's rereat, but during a lag time, I was to be found on my belly under a tree taking pictures of these tiny "forrests." What a great time I had getting these pictures and learning about my Sony CyberShot at the same time. This first picture is my personal favorite!
A cluster of mushrooms.

Upon reflecting with my photography friend, I would have moved the grass out the way before shooting this one.

I never thought I could shoot into the sun, but this picture proves that I was wrong about that.

I love the texture of the pine needles on the ground juxtaposed to the texture on the underside of the mushroom!
