|This is the underside of a mushroom in a local park. The top of it was grey and it was huge |

A wood blewit perhaps?
|A photo played about with after uploading. I was trying to find a way to make |
the green stand out a bit without going too lurid

|While the photo was in full colour, I couldn't get the effect I wanted|

around with it and crop it to zero in on those colours. Photo then enhanced
to really bring out the brightness, the gold and the pinky-reds.
|I took lots of pictures of this plant. Can't recall now if it was ivy or|
rosemary, and these gnarly branches were bristling with ice crystal

|A lot of my macro shots from the frost day did not pay off but I|
liked this one and was pleased with the blurring of the thorns
I could get in the background.
|Down by a pond, the layer of pitted ice on a puddle where the water|
had receeded. This also worked as a black and white shot but chose
to share this one.
|Not a very good photo per se but I loved the way the ice formed in cubes|
