That's a very attractive photo, especially at a higher(tighter) zoom 
level, where you can see every detail, as a few people have pointed out 
The glow is a nice touch!

Despite being avid mushroom gatherers (and eaters), we've never gathered
any of this type. Of all the mushrooms growing on trees and stumps, we 
only gathered Armillaria - which we liked a lot! Those are tasty and easy 
to handle, as they are almost never damaged by larva ("worms").

(Fun fact: in Russian, sulphur shelf/sulphur polypore mushrooms are called 
"trutoviki", which shares the word root with "truten'" - drone bee; this 
root means "parasite". These mushrooms are sometimes regarded as 
"sanitarians of forests" that help keeping the forests healthy, but seen 
as "pests" in personal gardens, as they ensure a quick death of your 
favorite fruit tree.)

That is such a lovely photo.. I've eaten them and they are delicious - one 
of the few I felt confident enough to gather.   I bet it was not long 
before those were cut down... commonly called sulphur shelf here.

     Autumn is still very sunny here in western Europe so mushrooms are 
only slowly popping up.

     Here a more resilient type, sulphur polypore on a dead tree.
     You can eat these but I rather stick to carrots.
