This Weeks Featured Print: Eye Light


For this weeks featured print I go all they back to October 2015.

It was rutting season and I went in search of Red Deer Stags at Chasewater in Staffordshire, England.

I had been following an elusive stag for a while just after sunset and I had lost him in the trees after he had been chasing the younger Stags away from his Hinds.

I turned to around and there he was staring straight at me. I noticed the light shining on his eye so took this underexposed shot to highlight his eye.

Red Deer Rut at Chasewater


It was still dark when I left the house this morning, just a short drive to Chasewater in Staffordshire to see if I could find any Red Deer. It’s Rutting Season, so hoped to get some views of testosterone fuelled Stags.

Couldn’t believe my luck! As soon as I started to walk along a path through the heath area the well known large Stag appeared in front of me. I followed him for a while and even accidentally got within a few feet, luckily with a fence separating us. I stalked him for a while and could see a great shot through the trees with the sun lighting just one of his eyes so quickly grabbed a snap.
