We may be blessed with several days of dry conditions, but InMenlo contributing photographer Robb Most captured the result of the long rainy period when he ventured out to Portola Valley last Sunday and parked along Alpine Road, which runs adjacent to Damiani Creek.
We feature a number of his photographs, including a very wet shelf fungus, a type of mushroom that makes shelves or brackets to produce spores above the ground. The species has long been used to make herbal medicine, according to Fun Facts About Fungi. The tree it was attached to had broken and fallen to the ground.
On this photography exploration, Robb used his Nikon d500 and a Nikon Zoom lens 28-300mm.
For those interested in photographing how weather changes the surrounding environment, more showers are predicted towards the end of this week.
