Saturday Self Challenge

This challenge is fairly self-explanatory; use diagonal lines to form your composition. It can be of any subject, in color or black and white, as long as a diagonal line or lines are the main subject of the composition. You may also choose any form of post processing you wish, no limit. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Have fun!

Taken during a walk through the woods at Hardcastle Crags. The valley side is quite steep, I spotted these mushrooms growing on this branch around 15 feet away from the main path.

After a scramble upwards it became apparent that any effort to stand upright up was going to be impossible, the leaves and soft ground just slid away from beneath me. Natures way of saying that I possibly shouldn’t have been there.

After a couple of tumbles, I decided that for the safety of the camera and myself, it would be safer to take the shot from an almost prone position on the woodland floor. This is the result. I think the mushroomss are called Brick Tuft, but I’m not sure, when I started researching I found around 600 different identifiable fungi in the UK.

Thank you for your visit and your comments, they are greatly appreciated.

Well seen and liking your determination to get the shot, Ruth :-) It definitely paid off. Spot-on diagonal framing. Love the contrasting fungi. Very pleased that neither you nor the camera suffered any damage.
