Bushy Park .... Deer rut (Image heavy)

Have been meaning to go for years but normally we go away in October so never got the chance up until last weekend. Took along the K-1 and 150-450mm and have to say they performed very well, the only let down being the buffer which left me standing around waiting a few times.

Nice set Mike - the 3rd shot is my favourite, the soft brown tones work so well

Some lovely shots here. My parents used to take us a lot to Bushy Park when we were kids.

Lovely shots Mike, a bit of a trip from Hampshire!

Mine too. It was only down the road from us really (I grew up in Sunbury). We never went to Richmond Park though for some reason. Saw photos of how jam acked Richmond Park was this weekend. Poor deer.

Richmond Park is on my doorstep, and I prefer my bed rather than going out at silly o'clock to go into the park. Fortunately it's a 20 minute walk via East Sheen Common and another 20 mins to Royal Ballet School so all of it is walkable for me.

Your remark about the queues in RP just reminds me of the annual photofest of the Darwin wannabees trying to feed the stags. Sometimes some people leave their brains behind at the gate. Then there is the issue of cyclists.

Just convinced myself to stay in bed later this weekend.

I went the other week to Richmond Pk ( Fri 9th Oct) , got there for when the park opens at 7am, some decent shots and myself and a friend were pretty much the only photographers around, had the the place to ourselves photo wise till lunchtime.

The cyclists kept to the roads we went x country.

There's a welcome variety of poses/points of view in this set, Mike. All very nice.

Lovely shots. The last gets my vote. K.

Small world. We grew up in Oatlands Village (between Walton and Weybridge). not far from you just over the bridge.

Cheers for the comments.

I got there around 6.30am on a Sunday morning and apart from a few cars the place was dead. By about 9.30 it was absolutely heaving, I could have sold my parking space for about £20 ten times over I reckon.

Anyway, it made a change and now I know where it is I will do it again.
