Spotted this fellow on a walk last sunday. This mushroom decided to grow right on top of a post of a gate in a fence.

The weather wasn't perfect for photography at all: grey, cloudy and a bit of drizzling rain. Still iI am pleased with the results. Moreover this is a first attempt to process the RAW image in Darktable. ItΕ› freeware that got my interest for a while, now I have found the time to practice it. The learning curve is a steep one and I am not at the end of the curve. I still need to figure out how to denoise the background, for instance. as an first attempt, I am pleased with the result.

On miserable, grey, dreary days it is easy to give up photographically and just assume there is nothing worth pointing a camera at, so full marks for spotting this delightful little world. There is just enough light to separate the miniature world from the dark background. In fact the flat lights probably better for this than bright sunlight. The result is a great photo of a little subject.
