Stag morning

by David Allen January. 06, 2018 816 views

This photo did not need hours of patience! On our last morning of a stay at Doune in 2013 this stag came down to graze on the grass in front of the lodge. I was able to stand at the door and take the pictures through the window. The only difficulty was that it was early on a September morning and the light was limited. It was a lovely end to a special week as I had been celebrating a big number birthday there.

Low light??? I'm sure this picture is not suffering from it!

Just before sunrise in late September. Photo taken at ISO 4000!

That's really low light - I was impressed before, now I'm speechless!

Now that is one heck of a shot, what a beautiful animal, the background of the water and the lust green of the grass makes the Stag pop into view, awesome photo

The folk who live there have many wonderful photos of the wildlife. These include pictures of their chickens on the backs of visiting deer! Andy Tibbetts one of the owners at Doune is himself an excellent photographer.

Colin Prior and Ben Osborne (Light and Land) both lead photography holidays based at Doune.
