Taken in Richmond Park last autumn. There was a wonderful mist in the forest. And the sun was backlighting these deer. there were actually around 20 deer all taking turns to fight one another here.

thanks for sharing!

wow, very dream like, but scary if these deers run to you.
garsh6p (43) 2006-10-09 5:16
Beautiful and surreal. I thought it is a painting. Did you do any post-editing on the image?
leiju (1697) 2006-10-09 5:20
Wow! What an amazingly surreal setting for such amazingly glorious animals! Woah! It is a magnificent shot!
The FG however is a bit too close and stops us from seeing any single one of the deers completely, which is a pity. Could you have gotten any higher or were the circumstances stopping you from looking beyond this little 'hill' of leaf-covered ground?

This is beautiful photo almost unreal,beautifuly caught deers.Great light and colour.

wooow, this is just magical alex. wonderful light, beautiful colours, perfect composition, if only the POV could have been a little higher, but then u would have been an easy target for the boys, wouldnt you? :) congrats.

I lived in wimbledon when i was younger and often used to drive through richmond park, but never remember it being like this; could be a scene from the King Arthur's realm. very atmospheric and great colour. The exposure is immaculate. thanx, Jez

isabib (1953) 2006-10-09 7:37
The golden colors, the formation of the deers and the lighting are superb. Are you in a bunker or wearing a camo to take this shot? TFS!
starbug (6924) 2006-10-09 7:43
hi Alex, the magical light and wonderful colours aside, that you managed to catch the deer is the real feat. it's such a rare sight -at least where i live:-)- you were really lucky! thans fo sharing
Alberto_Trek (304) 2006-10-09 7:46
Hello Alex! What a nice shot, not only for the colours (best impossible), and the atmosphere (great), but for the deers' composition (like a triangle). Yes, really difficult to do. Congratulations. Alberto
Doraemon (577) 2006-10-09 7:46
The autumnal tones are wonderfull and the light in the mist is perfect for this kind of composition. I like your low POV, we suppose you camouflage to not disturb the deers. Beautifull one.
Albrecht (11281) 2006-10-09 8:39
A spectacular scene;great colours and atmosphere, and the light also is beautiful.
Lucky you to be there......

Very good lowered composition. Well done, it wasn't easy to catch a moment like that, I suppose.
cherubin (1971) 2006-10-10 14:17

bakes888 (18499) 2006-10-14 17:16
Hi Alex. Magnificent photo. I love the composition with the centrally placed stag that appears to be the dominant one. The colour is so vibrant for a misty photo also. Thanks for sharing.
TManiac (129) 2006-10-16 7:47
This is a unique photo! You must be really lucky to see such a sight and even luckier to take a picture of it!
Excellent colours and fantastic POV, I hope you won't take my WS as a correction, hope you like it!
Thanx 4 sharing!
Polonaise (5802) 2006-10-17 21:12
Then, God bless those weird Brits, and the photographer who was able to prove it.
The lights are magical and the animals are majestic.
Walking in the park right in the middle of autumn...
What a treat it must be out there, in Richmond Park, London, England.
rafalzurawel (229) 2006-10-23 8:41
You are good Alex!
eugeneahn (298) 2006-10-26 22:19
Amazing image. You got everything you could have asked for!
WhiteRose (10) 2006-11-02 4:25
I enjoy looking at all of the images you have submitted so far but this one is one of the best I have seen on TrekEarth. A stunning composition combined with perfect judgement of exposure.
ein22 (478) 2007-02-20 5:11
Perfact amazing and stunning are just a few words to describe.
I like this photo alot. Not even Bambi looks so grand.
TFS I really like this.
manada (6239) 2007-02-20 6:11
Nice ambient! The scene seems not real so is wonderful. Well done one of my favorite shot!
arturo (31) 2007-11-19 6:27
i must admit that having visited the park many times in the past i still can not resist the illusion of being moved into some unreal dear realm...that's alchemy what you did here;-)...cheers, arturo
ku-fotak-chtik (1142) 2008-03-13 6:23
Wow, the colours and atmosphere are stunning. Thanks for sharing!!!

coco (30439) 2009-06-21 15:38
Well, this is a great photo.
The subject, the light, the composition, the... technically is perfect and also this is a very very beautiful work.
blueaquan (299) 2009-10-06 13:01
Amazing shot! Looks like its a piece out of some Fairy Tale movie.
Beautiful colours of the Autumn leaves and the mist adds to make this a great shot.
However there are two things I would have loved to know about this shot. First your EXIF Data and second, to know what Post Processing was done on the image.
hong-fam (12) 2009-10-24 22:33
I like the blur of green and red, i like the light, i like animals. Greate photo.
inca1901 (233) 2009-10-25 4:50
Très belle vue d'automne, ces cerfs sont magnifiques
vmukherjee (612) 2010-09-27 21:30
A magical picture! The light, colours, composition, all are breathtaking. I wonder if cropping the lower green part would make the image even better.... Anyways, thanks for sharing such a wonderful picture.
kinginexile (2598) 2010-09-27 21:35
Everything contributes to making one of the best contributions on TE today (and maybe yesterday, but I did not look!).
LAPIAZ (3144) 2010-09-29 2:29
Hello from France Alex,
Really stunning moment captured, the atmosphere is quite mystic ! The mist, the automn colors...fabulous scene :-o
Have a nice day,
geert1 (146) 2011-04-10 7:41
Wow, this is a wonderful photo! Great job!
Ursus (88) 2011-04-10 8:43
Love your photo. The theme, autumn colours, composition. It must be more challanging to capture wildlife, but you maneged to do it very well. Very good work!
daddo (27756) 2011-08-18 3:01
Hi Alex. Looking at your most recent participation date, the chances of you reading my comments are slim, but nevertheless I must say that I am most impressed by your work and your long absence is definitely TE's loss. There are very few poetic souls on this sight whose work whose work lifts the spirit and fires the imagination, like your work does. Your photos of the deer with the light that surrounds them are just sublime. Hopefully you will return and inspire us anew. Best wishes. Klaudio.
Leo71538 (555) 2011-11-30 13:28
Such a dreaming scene. Marvelous! TFS
Z-Saturn (92) 2011-11-30 14:00
realy excellent..colours, fog, deers, balance..
and I want to be given 98 to me too :))
eugenefu (526) 2013-09-03 19:03
This is simply magical! Great outstanding shot. The colour, sharpness with golden red tree leaves on the background made this shot breathtaking. Very well done!
