Red deer grazing in Bushy Park on a misty April morning.
Image taken between sunrise and moonset which happened soon after - this is when the moon appears bigger than it usually does and reflects the colour of the rising sun.

Hi Kasia, this is a great nature photo, especially the moon and the fog around the animals.
Very well done.

This is a wonderful picture, well worth another cold and uncomfortable night spent in the car :-). Everything is so neatly and perfectly lined up as if you had told the deers where to stand and the moon where to set. The haze has given the colours a magic softness. Fantastic.

What a picturesque scene Kasia. The warm tint of the sun's light on the moon is in sharp contrast with the chilly morning mood as displayed by the overall cool tones and the layer of mist hovering above the ground.
Hard to believe this wonderful natural scene is but a stone's throw from the huge sprawl of outer London. A most attractive piece of work and lovely subject.

Une très belle image naturelle avec la brume qui fait ressortir l'impression de froid.
Bravo et bonne soirée.

Wow! Absolutnie wyjątkowy oraz mistrzowsko wykonany kadr. Jestem pod jego wielkim wrażeniem. Wybrałas fantastyczny moment na zrobienie tej fotografii. Mgła stworzyła wyjątkowy nastrój. Brawo!

Your early rise has paid dividends.
This is a sight that we rarely see on TE.
The deer, grazing in the early morning, rising mist, has such romantic overtones.
The tree is important to the scene, assisting strong composition and helping to determine the depth and height of the mist whilst, also, creating a protective canopy for the deer.
The massive moon is the icing on the cake!
My warm regards,

Hi Kasia,absolutely beautiful,the choice of the moment makes the difference,what a spectacle and what a top class pic,a great standing ovation to you! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Zdravo Kasia. I still remember your other deer shot with golden light. This one is as beautiful but of a different mood. I see that 1/8 of a sec. wasn't enough to eliminate blurring caused by movement (particularly on the left) and I wonder what ISO you used. Still, the important focal point is the deer with its head raised. Maybe if you sang in Polish you would have got greater attention. The soft colours are wonderful. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

Fantastique rencontre matinale! Magnifique composition exploitant au mieux le bel arbre, les animaux, la brume et, bien sûr, la pleine lune. Superbe travail!

Jelenie w Londynie?? Chyba to nie zoo. Fantastyczny wielki księżyc i wspaniałe te mgly nad ziemie. Świetne zdjęcie, bardzo romantyczne, znakomicie skomponowane, magiczne. Bardzo mi sie podoba. Warto było się zerwać skoro świt.

J'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère très paisible de cette image. J'aime aussi l'effet calmant de la brume. Que dire de ces très beaux chevreuils qui semblent n'avoir peur de rien.

WOW, what a wonderful photo and peaceful atmosphere,

Great photo !
CLODO (29914) 2014-04-27 2:01
Congratulations for this nature shot. Everything is perfect: the mood with the mist, the deers and also the full moon. I just notice that only the deer looking at you is sharp, the other have moved a little bit during your long (1/8s) exposure.
mesutilgim (82178) 2014-04-28 12:01
Amazing scenery as if from a tales book.
Very good pov and layout, perfect light management.
TFS and best regards

To jest Londyn? Wygląda jak środek lasu. Super zdjęcie, aż czuje się to zimno i wilgotną mgiełkę na skórze, pięknie ujęte
ourania (29263) 2014-04-29 12:39
you captured a lot of extraordinary effects in this photo, each one would be enough to make any scenery attractive and fascinating. All of them combined give a unique picture that looks so natural and peaceful too. The misty colours and atmosphere are magnificent, there's such a fine balance among all the elements featured. The deer looking towards the viewer adds intensity, making them hold their breath lest they disturb or lose this scene. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

i still remember your excellent "first day of autumn" photo, taken on 15 sept'14. besides being a spring shot, this one has a more winterly atmosphere to it. very well balanced composition, and the sharpness of the deers is amazing regarding the 1/8 shutter speed. making the craters of the moon visible, needs low exposures, so i guess this is a little bit underexposed photo.
chawax (19066) 2014-05-01 4:33
You couldn't imagine this photo was token in London ! It looks like it was token far from such a big city ! Very good framing, the tree is a nice natural frame for the picture and the branches drive our look to the beautiful moon. The fog makes a very peaceful atmosphere. Very well done !
bachapi (369) 2014-05-01 9:48

A story book scene. Great magical atmosphere with the mist and moon and that special old tree framing the deer. The animals look like they are in paradise, so peaceful. Lovely image.
jhm (137502) 2014-06-17 5:52
