I decided to take a little walk around my neighborhood to get a little exercise. On my walk, I discovered some mushrooms growing on the side of the road. One tip that I had read recently for improving your photographic technique is to try taking photos from a different perspective. So rather than photographing these mushrooms from a standing or squatting position, I got down on my stomach to take the shot.
The photo was taken with my NikonD40x with an 18-55mm zoom lens set at a focal length of 19mm. ISO was set at 100 with a shutter speed 1/100s and an aperature of f/5.
