Mushrooms at Fountains Abbey

As it's a new year I thought I'd start making some quick posts with single images so I have no excuse for not making several posts a week.

Back in October we went to Fountains Abbey for a walk on one of the few sunny days of the year.  It hadn't been  sunny all day, in fact in the morning there had been snow.  We were stopping at Lynne's sisters house at Ripon overnight so we didn't have far to go to get to the Abbey.

As we were walking around one of the paths I saw these mushrooms growing on an old piece of tree.  We were in the shade of the trees so I had to use my pop up flash to light the mushrooms. I like the bit of green moss in the corner and the texture of the rotting wood.  We saw more mushrooms later in the walk so maybe more another time.
