So much Rain lately


3 times the average rainfall this month!


when the wet earth is warmer than the air
mist rises


in the rainy seasons
mushrooms push up through pine needle soil


rain a perfect environment for lichens and moss to thrive


in the high mountains
rain becomes snow

  1. Well, once again, the purple mushroom intrigues. But that mist and then the snow scene remind me of Narnia or Camelot. Exquisitely beautiful in every single way.

    Have a splendid weekend.

  4. I love the second image - so beautiful!
    And image 4, a magical miniature forest, is it moss or lichen?

    Thank you Tammie,

    1. hi Ruby,

      I believe it is mostly lichen. Though lichen, moss and fungi all seem to be related, the more i learn, well the more there is to learn. These beings are amazing to consider. Thank you for your visit and letting me know which ones touched you.

  6. You're getting some colorful fungi, Tammie! We had some rain at the house this week, but the peaks got snow. At this time of the year, it could fall as either. Beautiful last photo marking the snow line!

  8. I'm feeling strange, while looking at these breathtaking photos. I "hear" the silence, the rattling of the rain drops, the sound of the shoes walking on the wet grass... You've captured amazing sights, Tammie, thank you for the pleasure!!

  13. Same story here in southern Norway, but this weekend the sun visited us again, and I've been outdoor most of the time enjoying the magic colors of autumn :-)
    Nice pictures Tammy! Mist rising from the ground always creates a really good mood :-)

  14. Beautiful photography, love the colors. So different from the dry desert environment where I am usually taking pictures! The transition from rain to frost in the last photo is impressive!

  18. Wow, the colour on some of those fungi is truly amazing. When I see the profusion of fungi in the forests here I always wish I had the secure knowledge of which ones are edible and I would fill a basket in an instant!

  19. Dear Tammie - Thanks for sharing the beauty of the wet forest and mountains. Our September was rainy or cloudy and good for the moss in my garden. Your mushrooms are so colorful. Rain, mist, or snow makes the scene atmospheric.
