Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Fall is Mushroom Season at the Arrow Lakes

The most common mushroom varieties in our area are the pine mushrooms, the chanterelles (Pfifferlinge), and the lobster mushrooms. Mushroom buyers are setting up their stations as early as September. In October people from all over the province are flocking into our woods in search of the precious pine mushrooms which fetches as an export article the highest price. My wife most probably a direct descendent of the ancient hunters and gathers is also bitten by the annual pine mushroom fever, while I am content with my passion with photography. We drive into one of the lucrative forest areas where we part for one hour or two. Then I always find something worth photographing. Two weeks ago, my focus was on the very small mushrooms, which have a special beauty of their own. Enjoy.

From this magnificent viewpoint we go down to the mushroom forest.

Perhaps some of you mushroom experts may be able to identify the mushrooms. The last mushroom could be a boletus but I am not sure.

  1. Mushroom hunting sounds like a fun activity, both for the collector and the photographer, Peter. Glad you were able to enjoy an hour or two getting lost in the mushroom forest!

  2. Hallo Peter, dieses Jahr haben wir wenige Pilze gefunden. Liegt aber daran, dass wir zur “Pilzezeit” einfach wenig zu Hause waren. Das erste Foto ganz oben ist so, wie ich mir Kanada vorstelle 😉 Liebe Grüße

  3. I’ve seen mushrooms just like the ones you photographed in the woods here in Southern Finland. Alas, I don’t know their names. Have to ask a friend who should know.
