Like last year, we have summer temperatures (24 degrees C) in October. As most of the trees are coloured between yellow, orange and brown, I was out yesterday and today to chase these colours again. My big wish is to 'catch' a group of Fly Agarics together with the rising sun.
This morning started on the Strabrechtse Heide, a heath area near Eindhoven and I tried to catch the beautiful red sky but unfortunately I forgot the correct ND-grad filter and as I was very unsatisfied about the result, I decided to switch to macro again.
Between the brown heather I found in a kind of hole some remaining purple heather and the red oak in the background gave a special yellowish background.
I left the heather and started my mission 'Fly Agaric'. As they can be often found near birches I searched for them and within minutes I found the first red mushrooms. As I wanted a special background I was happy to find one near a red oak. The complete ground was coloured red/brown by fallen leaves. Although it was early in the morning, the sun was shining powerful and with my tripod and jacket I created shadow on the mushroom and two oak leaves.
Near the bridle-path I found some more beautiful Fly Agarics. Some later I returned to my car as too many horses, bikers and other people were passing by.
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
