Red Deer............................................................................ in Black and White

To take my mind off my leg and the depression I am feeling I have been playing with my pictures.
Here are some of the Red Deer images in black and white... quite striking I think.

Monarch of the Glen... (OK the Cheshire plain).

This Royal Stag was amazing to see so close to the road.


These images are just a few of my personal favourites... in colour or black and white.




If I get the chance to return during the next week or so to watch the rut I will jump at the chance.

Love how these pictures seem to reflect the animal's personality. I assume with the rut coming on, they have alot to think about. Thank you for sharing from your part of the world with a camera. Beautiful shots.

Bless you and your leg Andrew and stay chipper, nothing to be depressed over, when you can journey out with camera and snag these kinds of beauties. Happy Day your way~

Those are really impressive antlers, so beautifully rendered in B&W. Hope you are feeling better very soon.

Marie said...

I am so sorry you have hurt your leg! may you have a speedy recovery. The Red Deer are so majestic...I can't get over the beauty of their lines, especially that Royal Stag! Lovely B&W photos.

Aiketa said...

Wow, impressive photos!!! So so so so great!
Deers are such beautiful animals.
The second last picture is funny, it seems to me like if the deer was sleeping on the grass and just wake up when noticing someone was around... (yeah, I make my imagination work).

I hope you are feeling better, Andrews. I don't know what happened to your leg, but I hope it's better and you are in a happier mood now.

Kind regards from Barcelona.

Beautiful photos! The top one is my favorite.

Gemma Wiseman said...

A wonderful collection! Especially love the full profile of the deer's face and antlers! Dynamic!

HansHB said...

A great B&W post!

Taken For Granted said...

These are stunning photos of beautiful animals, but I wouldn't want to be too close to hormone fueled deer with those huge antlers. Be careful. Hope you have a really long lens.

Wonderful photos! I love them all, but that first one really grabbed my attention with his pose. Great detail of the thick hair at his neck.
