As some of you may have noticed, I like to use mushrooms in my images. They’re just so wonderfully odd-looking. In the “Cosmic Mushrooms” series, I pair them with images of nebula taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. The shapes of fungi thrusting though the earth and jets of gas pushing against the interstellar medium echo each other wonderfully, so that even a toadstool several parsecs across isn’t completely strange…

“Cosmic Mushrooms 4” combines an image of the Orion Nebula (the Trapezium stars) with a photograph from stock.xchng member Bartek Pawel.
