I am always looking through older images as I never delete a single one! Images that I ignore when I take them, I see things in them later that make me glad I didn’t hit the delete key.
This photo is one of those and is a ‘natural’ panoramic. Natural in the sense that I photographed it as a panoramic format image. It’s a multiple image stitched panoramic photograph. I was stood in the middle of a piece of heathland, patiently waiting for deer to pass through. I know they reside in the area as I always see fleeting glimpses of them from time to time.
Unfortunately, or should I say ‘as usual’, I did not see any deer. I would have loved to have seen them pass, as they would have really added to this composition, as the viewer would see this just as a forest photo, and on closer inspection would see deer camouflaged against the winter foliage.
But, alas it was not to be…but never mind, I love the colours, the red/brown against the bluey grey….and that is what originally struck me when I was out there.
