Fungi along the Overland Track

The last couple of days of rain have gotten me thinking about the cooler autumn months which are not far away now. One of the main highlights of autumn for me is the fungi, and I schedule all of my photography workshops through autumn to share this wonderful time of year with people. Here are some shots taken last autumn of various fungi along the Overland Track. Anyone keen to join one of my autumn trips should get in touch soon. A couple of trips are now fully booked and I am starting to schedule new dates 🙂

The best thing about this fungi was that it was growing right on the edge of a fallen tree trunk meaning it was basically at eye level so photographing it didn’t require the flexibility of an olympic gymnast 🙂

For those interested, there are 2 places left on the Tarkine trip (May 6-10) and I have added new dates in June for the Cradle Mountain trip. There is still plenty of room on the Freycinet trip from June 5-7 too, although fungi wont really feature on that one 😉
