Yet another part of the path.

I seem to take a lot of pictures of paths when I am in the woods. I sometimes feel that my entire photography career is just photographing potential covers for a new edition of Walden.

I've always had a soft spot for most types of fungi. Here is a fine-looking pair of young puffballs. For more about puffballs, read this.

Fungus fruiting bodies on a fallen log.

A branch fell off this tree. It did not take long for fungi to colonize it, as the wood was still solid.

Ghost plant (Monotropa uniflora) was everywhere. This was the first batch I spotted.

Another batch of Monotropa. Sometimes the stalks were clustered together like this, at other times, several individual stalks were located over a 1-meter radius.

The best-looking Monotropa spotted that day. They are fascinating plants. You can read more about them here.
Our eyes naturally go to the focal point in am image, in this case, the end of the road which is in the center of the image. There is a little visual interest because I was standing off to the side of the road, but nothing much is getting emphasized by this composition.
The focal point is in the bottom left corner of the image. This composition emphasizes both the sky and the stand of trees to the right.
The focal point is in the top left corner. This composition emphasizes the road.
The focal point is in the upper right hand corner. Had I been standing in the exact middle of the road, this image would have resembled the previous image to a large extent. But because I was at the edge of the road, this composition emphasizes the grassy area at the edge of the road.
The focal point is in the lower right hand corner now. Like the previous image, the grassy area to the left of the road is emphasized, but this is balanced out by bringing in a lot of blue sky.
