This is the coolest mushroom I’ve ever seen. I don’t know if it’s actually a toadstool or not, but it sure looks like a toadstool straight out of a fairy tale!
This toadstool was right in my campsite in Newport, Oregon. I love the way the red top stands out against the green background. I played with lots of different camera positions until I found one that highlighted the interesting detail on the top while still showing some of the underneath parts. I used a simple flashlight to fill in the shadows.
