Photographing Fungi in Tasmania

There are a lot of great locations close to Hobart for photographing fungi in the cool and wet Tasmanian autumn. I run regular photography tours to Mt Field, the Styx Valley and the Upper Florentine Valley which are now part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. I also have a shorter “Hobart & Surrounds” trip where fungi is common in the autumn months. Here is Part 1 of shots from the past few months, with some attempt at ID with the very handy “Fungi Flip” 🙂

Postia punctata at Mt Field National Park. Gave the K1 “Pixel Shift” feature a test run on this shot, and I must say the clarity on the water droplets is sublime…

Another one I cant quite find a name for – perhaps its a Dermocybe kula… Upper Florentine Valley

I have shot a lot of fungi this season so will no doubt have another blog post or two to share in the weeks ahead!
