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.
