Betsy, I captured the images in the Olympics, near Seattle. They were all over the place. Never have I seen so many mushrooms in my life. I'm glad you liked it, thanks for the comment.

You're welcome. Is it really as huge as it looks, or did the angle you took the picture at make it appear that way. It looks like something out of a fairytale. I really like it!

Betsy, I used three different pictures to composite this one image. The mushroom is not really that large. I'm glad you like it so much! It's fun to tell people as a joke that I stumbled onto this scene while deep in the woods.

Wow! You actually did fool me. I would have never guessed it was a digital composite for some reason. And I should have considered that possibility being that all my work is layered images as well, but mine's a little more obvious, for ex: the one I submitted today was of my son fishing on top of a fishbowl in the sky ... pretty obvious! You're right though, that would be quite a scene deep in the woods... you'd almost expect a little elf to jump out at you! Again great shot.

Hi Dan, I can envision this photo as a bookcover. You should do some homework and sell it to a children's book publication! Great job. Donnarae

Thanks, Donna! I appreciate the support. Sounds like a good idea to me. I'll give it a try.

Hi Dan,

This is an absolutely mavelous photo. I agree with Donna. This would make an excellent Children's book cover, poster, or greeting card. BRAVO!!!

Forget it Daniel- I had a trip planned for that area, if this is what grows out there, I 'm canceling and never going outside again!...:)
Great composition, very,very realistic. I like all your pans and this too.
Nice, nice gallery!
