It’s 7.30AM, the Kingston gate at Richmond Park has just opened, the weather forecast had said mist & fog the day before but looking at the scene in front of me I didn’t quite see how. As I got deeper into the park the mist got thicker, and thicker, suddenly it didn’t feel like it was going to be a waste of time after all. Sunrise started at 7.29AM, it was about 7.40AM by the time I got out of the car and made my way to where the Deer were so I didn’t waste any time. The sunrise was beautiful.

While I was stalking the indigenous species I took some time to shoot some of the scenery too, the reflection of the sun in the water was mesmerising, as were the golden colours glowing through the trees.
