Woods Mill Roe Deer


WMRoe03, originally uploaded by Christopher Mills.
I stopped in at Woods Mill on the way home from work tonight - I needed my fix, even if it was just carrying the gear around for a while! Luckily, a pair of rather juvenile-looking Roe Deer turned up to keep me entertained. They were startled by a dog walker (my pet hate - get a big enough garden or lose the mutt) but appeared again a few minutes later. The light was against me from the start - despite the BBC's earlier claim of sunny intervals there was nothing of the sort - and I struggled to get to the DOF / ISO / Shutter combo that I needed. Lots of RAW files straight in the Trash, but a few were just about acceptable to put up.

It's the first time I've seen deer at Woods Mill. I hope it isn't the last.
