Deep in the forest…

Mushroom Glen

Mushroom Glen

I wanted to create a mysterious, magical setting and still keep it within the realm of reality. I considered blue mushrooms but decided the contrast between red fungi and a green-blue background would make them pop. I added Spanish moss growing on a log in the background. I mean, what creates more mystery in a setting like this than Spanish moss?

  1. Very eerie and other worldly. Makes me curious who lives there.

  2. I love the picture! Makes me think of fairies.

    Feeling better today! Thanks for the well wishes.

  3. Love this! I'm enchanted 🙂

  4. I love what you did with that picture! It has a storybook sinister feel to it.

  5. Those red mushrooms really pop! They look sort of… evil. Love it.

  6. The red mushrooms are perfect!

  7. Oh, that's gorgeous. Very mystical!

  8. There's a lot you can do with moss. It hangs on trees, grows on the trunks (in some latitudes thicker on the north side). Its slippery when on the ground. Hanging moss is not confined to the ground. It conceals what its covering. I would make moss a defense all its own, a challenge for some to overcome who needs to pass through.

  9. Oh – love this image – intantly begs a story to go with it. Lx

  10. Love your blog name.



  11. Beautiful! LOVE those wild mushrooms on that background color!

  12. Definitely creates a mood. I can see Alice walking through hear with curiosity and trepidation. Maybe the Cheshire Cat is around the bend.

  13. Hi Holly … loved your photo and story line … I agree with Theresa ..Alice and the Cheshire Cat …

    Happy Thanksgiving for today .. cheers Hilary
