    Thank you Mark, MJ and Harold. I looked at a lot of images in this thread and thought these trees with their snow covered limbs would be something different.

    Snow excels at diffusing and reflecting light into the shadows.

    A nicely balanced centred composition with excellent colour and gradation.
    Ha, it seems like you figured how to post pictures direct from your computer, Lorell.
    Now you must teach me how it is done! (just kidding, Flickr works fine for me).

    Our first snowfall in Michigan last year was on November 12 th r when mother nature dropped 25 cm of the beaituful white stuff on the trees which still had their autumn leaves clinging to their branches.

    White Crust Fungus Colonies on Old Willow Bark

    We have some large (I can just lift them) Weeping Willow logs slowly rotting in our garden. We have arranged them so that we can plant e.g. some ferns between them.

    Some had straight edges (from splitting) facing outwards. When I turned this one around to present a curved surface, I found this extensive colony of crust fungus. The bark-covered surface was 40cm across.

    Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro,1/25 at f9 and f10, hand-held.

    The stereos are crosseye.

    I have reduced the highlights considerably.

    Thanks, Peter,

    Yes, I prefer the zygomorphic (more orchid-like) flower shape.

    Its a nice colour but I prefer the pinkish/yellow one more. The plants look healthy and show careful watering. Mine were often scorched and under-watered. Clearly you spend a lot of time with your plants.

    Schlumbergera Thor: Surprising Development

    On 24 November I showed images as the flowers were then:

    https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/to...3349/#15055010

    I thought that the larger flower was fully developed and that the smaller, yellowish on was mal-formed.

    Today's images of the same flowers show that both had more potential. They also show the longevity of the flowers.

    The stereo is crosseye.

    Wasn't sure whether this was cobweb or fungi when I took the photo!

    Thanks, Mark.

    It's a taller than the more common "Fairy Ring" species.

    Half a Ring of Funnels Clytocybe nebularis

    These were in chalk grassland on 24 November.

    The caps are about a hand-span across. I didn't get a closer look to see if there were traces of the other half of the ring.

    Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/60 at f11 ISO 1600, hand-held.
