A collection of images from South Shields and the North of England

The Stag

with 4 comments


I shot my first stag today!

Sorry this is not a shot from South Shields today, it’s a North of England shot. Yesterday Junior and I took a trip into North Yorkshire to visit a strange and adventurous “folly” called The Forbidden Corner, located at Coverham. It turned out to be a great place for kids and curious adults. They had a deer park there too, and that is where I shot my first stag (just with the camera though). This image is a crop from a larger picture, because I travelled light without a telephoto lens, but it seems to look O.K.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 82mm lens, 1/60 second, f5.6, iso 400

  2. To ‘shoot’ them with a camera, that’s OK ;-))

  3. He’s a fine fellow, but clearly still in his “earlier” years. He needs a few more “points” to look really impressive.
