Sample images from a recent test of a lens I had on loan from Fujifilm. All taken in Richmond Park, mostly deer with a couple of other subjects.Continue reading
I absolutely love photographing bluebells! While they are not my favourite flower, (that’ll be the Snake’s Head Fritillary), bluebells are my favourite flowers to photograph.
Following on from my previous post, a couple of weeks after acquiring an old Pentax ES II film camera the perfect opportunity arose to give it a test outing. I enjoy street photography, especially with a group I belong to on Meetup.com, and I stumbled upon another group that looked interesting.
… AND another year!
I can’t believe a whole year went by since my last post, how did that happen?
Sadly, I missed a lot of the rut this year, and some of the best conditions, due to other commitments. But I did manage a few outings and some decent shots.
The annual deer rut in Richmond Park this year was superb! Probably my most enjoyable ever.
It’s that time of year again when the male deer are looking magnificent ahead of the autumn rut (breeding season).
As usual, I’ve been out in Richmond Park a few times over the last couple of weeks, getting “in the zone” so to speak, with my photography. I always like to get in some practise before the main event, making sure my equipment is functioning and my technique is on the ball (steadiness, focusing, that sort of thing).
Snow is scarce in southern Britain. Checking through my archives, it’s been around eight years since I captured images in a decent snowfall. So I was excited when the “Beast from the East” (a Siberian weather system heading our way) was forecast to bring us unusually heavy snow.
This is a short post purely to share some images.
I’ve spent several mornings in Richmond Park over the last six weeks or so, mainly to photograph the deer during the autumn rut – the time of year when red deer stags and fallow deer bucks fight for dominance and the right to mate with the female hinds and does respectively.
