Craterellus cornucopioides (Horn of plenty)
    #1252599 - 01/27/03 09:49 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Came upon a nice discovery out in the wild today. I wasn't really expecting to find any of these yet. I almost stepped on the poor little guys ! I am acutally very amazed that I even saw them.

This is a Craterellus cornucopioides, a lovely tasting mushroom, (IMO).

Can you eat them raw, or do they have to be cooked?

As usual, excellent photo.

Those are some of the hardest mushrooms there are to spot. Nice find.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks. :laugh:

Im still working to figure out this camera. Notice how the entire mushroom is actually NOT in focus! :frown: Anyhoo, yes, I could not imagine actually looking just for these mushrooms on purpose!! hehe

Bluesky....Id imagine you would want to just cook them up first. I know with other chantrelles you can pretty much just eat them raw, but, they are much better cooked.

If you've got control over aperture on your camera, set the aperture higher. The higher the aperture, the more stuff will be in focus... But you'll also need more light.

Yeah, I should have set the fstop, or apature higher...ive noticed that if its up near 8 or 10, I get wayy more focus.

Manual focus is a biggie too ... I agree :wink:

Oh and gumby, I didn't get the Nikon, I sided with the top of the line Sony... Donno, but, I just liked it a lot more in the store! hehe. It was also $300 cheaper :wink:

I wouldn't complain if I had that Sony, its a damn nice Camera. After some of the reviews I've heard on Nikon cameras(like that CP 4500 review I gave you), I probably would have went with the sony as well... The thing just looks cool anyway, and 10x optical zoom, who's gonna argue with that? Whats the max res and how many MP does your camera have?

Just wait till its spring time here, we'll have the battle of the mushroom pictures. You with your Sony, me with my Fuji. I just got a 1GB microdrive and case for my cam and I can't wait till spring so I can get some nature pictures, things are just so drab in the winter, and inside stuff bores me. I've taken some pics of inside stuff though, you can look at what I've done at http://p0key.deviantart.com ... You should get your self an account over ther and upload some of your pics :smile:

By res do you mean pic size? Well the higest setting is 2560 X 1920. Its a 5.0 megapixel too. :smile: My favorite thing about it, is that the battery lasts 415 minutes. My old Sony only did 90 tops!

Only downfall is that I have only one 32 meg stick! I can only take 50 pictures at a time, but, I guess I can just go buy a 128 meg mem stick for 80 bucks...but, Ive seen the regular flash cards that you guys can buy for cheaper.

Yeah,  I like your pics, they are very nice. I cant wait to see some of your findings down in your southern state :smile: Its so enjoyable to take pictures of mushrooms, and be able to look at them on your computer really big and in detail! :wink:
