Nearly every weekend includes the LBJ Grasslands and mushroom or frog photography. I realize not everyone likes mushrooms or frogs (gasp) so I have changed things up for this post. (Also, frog photography will be waning with the cooler weather. Few frogs were frolicking at my favorite pond.)
I think this is the best scenic photo I’ve taken in months or maybe years. I’ve been so focused on tiny details with my macro lens that it’s hard to step back and capture a scene.
The photo wasn’t planned. I was lying on my stomach, photographing (and smelling) giant masses of rotting mushrooms at Ball Knob Cemetery at the LBJ Grasslands. It was the highlight of my weekend. While rearranging myself to avoid poison ivy, I looked up and captured this scene.
I can’t wait to return.
