Steve Axford is enjoying his retirement by tracking down the world’s rarest fungi. He lives in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales in Australia and most of the mushrooms you see here are local flora. Steve has also captured pretty unique shots of mushrooms from Tasmania and Victoria. He said: “The world, for me, is dominated by living things and the planet we live on . My photography is an avenue into exploring this world. My interests cover everything from micro fungi to volcanoes, though more of my time now is spent with the fungi than the volcanoes. . . Nothing exists in isolation and the more you look, the more you find.”
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
