Sunday Looked Good

I did my usual Sunday walk down to Ballard Park and Gooseneck Cove today, and this week some fairly good shots were the result.

This stump with the mushroom farm growing on it has been bugging me for a couple of weeks now. For some reason I could never get a decent shot of it, but today the light must have been just right.

Most of the Fall Aster blooms in Ballard Park have died off and left these puffballs behind.

And down on Gooseneck Cove, off Ocean Drive near the Green Bridge, I caught this Great Blue Heron fishing.

  1. Excellent photos - perfect light.

  2. You definitely captured the shrooms perfectly!

  3. Ah yes, always the light! What kind of camera do you use?

  4. Dammit outdid me again! I love your schrooms and the heron. We have some pretty crested ones up the road so I should go and stalk them one of these days. Lovely, just lovely.

  5. Thanks everybody!

    T - I have a Canon PowerShot S5IS. It's not a SLR, but it's not really a point-and-shoot, either. I guess you could say it's the evolutionary link between consumer and professional cameras.

    Baino - I stalked that lovely for a good half hour; I think I took close to 75 shots as it worked its way past the 3 places I stood very still in to capture it. This one was the best of the shots.

  6. Great photos and great colours. Without the date stamp on the post you would know it was October / November just from the colours.

  7. You must be incredibly patient.

  8. The mushroom farm looks like something out of Dr Seuss!

  9. looks like it was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. on the last hike I took the mushrooms around here aren't looking very fresh, although the weather has been warm lately I think an earlier freeze zapped all the plumpness and juice out of them

  10. You can stay here for a good couple of hours and no one pesters you to leave.
    PTCL has been, and still is one of the main telecommunications
    companies in Pakistan and is kind of interesting know how this market has evolved of the last two
    decades and how PTCL do to contribute to the grow of the market, giving to
    the Pakistan population a good quality service and an improved
    network where of course are include the Wi - Fi services. The
    park has everything from fitness boot camps to musical concerts.
