These shots were taken with only natural light, no flash, no leds.

Weather conditions led to some nice natural light.

Salt Lake City today:


glorious little cluster

Hey Walt,

I was so stoked to see these pretty little guys today. City hunting is so strange to me, especially in a desert city, but we had a week of snow followed by three days of soft steady misty rain, so I just had to go for a stroll(more like an intense five mile hike through random neighborhoods). I found this pretty cluster at a place where the gradual incline from the Lake up into the mountains takes a sharp upward turn. This is the Lake Bonneville fault. The land rises up about 300-500 ft in the space of a block and a half, before resuming the gradual incline to the edge of the mountains several miles further east. A small neighborhood shadowed by fault uplift sustains natural moss and lichens, which are uncommon in most of the city, and in days of raining weather, a respectable diversity of fungus can be found there. These mushrooms are growing on an ornamental (probably cottonwood) log in a random front yard just down the hill from the university, in the shadow the fault upheaval.

Nice shot Dan!
