Mushroom Foraging

Although I'm fairly new to this, we've been out a couple of times and found some interesting fungi.
Here is a picture of what I've been collecting.

And here are some lobster mushrooms, (at least I think they are) that I found at a very secret place today.

Here's a clue though, it looked like this !

 And it had some lovely big old trees like this.

As well as the I-think-they're-lobsters, there was this handsome specimen.

 This is the lucsious colour I got from some Cortinarius that I tested by throwing one in a small amount of water in the old microwave oven I use for dyeing.
All very exciting, can't wait to experiment some more and go foraging again.
