On a bright fall afternoon walking along Lahakas Boulevard in Kitimat, I came across a stretch of green, with all different kinds of mushrooms in just a few metres of ground. This group of mushrooms sort of reminded me perhaps of a house on an alien world.
The mushroom field.
The same group of mushrooms viewed from above.
These two made me think of a couple of flying saucers that had just landed on Earth.

On Saturday, July 7, 2012, Kitimat landscape photographer Doug Keech taught a photoworkshop, called Photoecllipse 2012, along with Prince Rupert photographer Pam Mullins (Pam’s Wild Images) and myself.
At the end of the day instructors and students went on a photo walk along the Clearwater Lakes Trail off Onion Lake on Highway 37.
There was heavy overcast and the walk was late in the day, after supper, between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Ferns and other plants by the side of the lake.,
Moss on this stump looked to me like an old beard clinging to a skull. What do you think?
This stump made me think of a charging grizzly bear.
A stream that feeds the lake comes down from the rainforest hills.

Another selection of images from my Android Galaxy camera phone.
These were taken at the same time as the Vignette photos in the last blog but using the black and white setting for the Retrocam.
My favourites for black and white are the Fudgecan (circa 1961 when I was growing up in Kitimat.) which have a sort of silvery sheen to the images.
