Theo Bosboom - Magic mushroom


Often I like to experiment a little bit with my motives, always trying to find ways to take a picture of it that reflects the essence of it better than an adequate registration would do. On a holiday in Southwest Sweden last year, I found a tiny mushroom at the edge of a small mountain stream. I tried to capture the reflections caused by the water in the background rather than the mushroom itself and put the white balance of my camera a bit cooler, with this picture as a result. And no, I didn’t eat any of them …

    Sometimes a more subjective and artistic interpretation of the real world can transform small worlds in great images, as such is the case. I really like this photo. It leads me to a world of magical sensations, surrounded by dreams and that makes me feel good spiritually. Thanks for sharing!
