Photo (3)

Throughout the last few years of boat ownership. I have been taking a number of photographs around the canals and rivers system. Obviously the subject would vary depending on where we were and what we were doing.

The photographic image was taken using a Canon 550d DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) which is my camera of choice. I use Coral Paintshop Pro X6 photo editing software for adding the logo and creating a smaller thumbnail image.

There is no particular theme, other than most of my photography is waterways inspired. It's whatever that caught my attention at the time. So I thought I might include a few of my photographs into the blog. I am looking for titles to give to the images, you might like to suggest one of your own.

This late autumn, early winter image was taken just after dawn at Mercia Marina on the Trent and Mersey canal.  The mushrooms were growing through the bake chippings in one of the flower beds.

The very pretty and looking like a wax covered parasol, the Milkcap Mushroom is very poisonous. The mushrooms have a slight covering of frost. The frost helps to give the image some definition and texture. 

There are roughly 15,000 types of wild fungi in the UK, identification is not easy. As mushrooms can be very toxic to touch or eat, I never forage wild mushrooms as food.

I take photographs for my own personal pleasure. Whilst I reserve copyright ownership of the photographic image. You are free to use the image for your own purposes as long as the logo is not removed and you give credit to where the photograph came from. The image provided on the blog is a thumbnail of the original photographic image.
