The mushroom is tiny, about 2cm and reminded me of a climber on a cliff, maybe in the Andes or something. The leaf behind the indian pipes was that way when we got there. Honest. It looks like a deliberate set, but we found it that way.

I'm working on a couple shots that are like sets from Land of the Lost or something. Strange plants.

thanks guys. Snow? Probably not for 2-3 months. We get a really long brown/stick season down here.

thanks guys. The lighting was pretty darn perfect...bright sun obscured by clouds without being too dark.
