With beautiful autumn weather I returned to the area where I had found the autumn crocus (Colchicum autumnale). This plant looks similar to the spring crocus but blooms in autumn after the leaves have died. As the sun was shining slightly, some flowers were open. As these little plants are growing in wet and nutritious meadows I was dressed in a rain suit and equipped with an angle finder. Lying down in the grass and concentrating on the ‘best’ composition I heard some noise in the distance. A group of hikers were looking at me......I waved to them to show that I was alive and continued photographing these lovely flowers.
As I also found an exposed Ink Cap (Coprinus comatus) earlier, I walked into the forest to photograph this mushroom. It took me some time as I tried to catch the falling drops of the cap.....unfortunately I had to use a slow shutter time and it was a mission impossible to catch them falling. I make the rounds and when I crossed an other path I met some hikers. It seemed that this was the group hikers which had seen me before and they were very anxious to know what I had photographed. I showed them my autumn crocuses and had a little talk with them.
Later on I realized that I need business cards to hand out as here in Germany (Teutoburger Wald) almost everybody starts a conversation and is interested in what I’m doing.
