Competition 3 - Blue & Open

The judging for our 3rd competition "Open" & "Blue" was held via Zoom. Our judge, Adrian Smith, provided comments that Tania, our Competition Steward, read while we displayed the images. Note, only digital images are being judged due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

Mt Macedon Fungi Hunt 2020

Can you believe it! On Sunday May 31 we had our first outing in what seems like forever and we took it back to an old favourite: Mount Macedon and its fungi.

Around 20 of us met up at Days Camp Ground, Lions Head Road, Mount Macedon. Breaking into a couple of groups to ensure we maintained the correct social distancing; as required because of this crazy pandemic that currently grips the world. We were all grateful to be out of our homes and seeing each other in person once more.
