I wonder now why I've never been to Richmond Park before. So it is a bit of a trek - over two hours by bus and foot but arriving at dawn yesterday I realised its a beautiful place... until the masses arrive. The morning broke grey without any atmospheric fog (it'll take a few visits in the next couple of months) and it was a while before the sun broke through. Although its nearly mid-October, yesterday could have been the best day of the summer. Still a lot of dragonflies and butterflies around while Redwings, Meadow Pipits and Skylarks streamed overhead. Leaving the park after sunset I saw a Little Owl on a low branch of a huge oak silhouetted against a fine sunset and the new crescent moon rising. And of course, the reason for visiting....Red Deer.
Really beautiful photos! Morning shots when it's just getting light with mist or frost would be nice too in a few weeks! L.X
