The Oyster Mushroom is Dale's most recent series started in 2011 and represents some of Dale's finest black and white photography. Her attraction to the oyster mushroom was their varying shapes and contrasts in textures. Dale's source for the fresh mushrooms is at a local farmer's market and they are generally available June to September.
