I was look for somewhere different to visit with my camera in the hope of capturing some autumn colours. A local wooded area called Eelmoor had always looked like it had potential when I used to cycle through it on my way to Farnham. So armed with my little Sony RX100 I decided to pay a visit one Friday after work, a sort of scouting trip. It was completely oblivious to the fact that this was an area of Special Scientific Interest due to the amazing variety and abundance of Fungi.

Lighting conditions were pretty challenging forcing me to shoot at high ISO with long shutter speeds. Luckily I had my tripod, even so I struggled to get good sharp images.

Final image from my recce is of a beautiful fly agaric specimen. One of the few mushrooms I actually can identify. I did take a film camera with me on both this and a follow up trip but I have yet to develop the film.
