Richmond park in the is one of the most magical places to visit. A world away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The park comes alive with atmosphere. From the autumn deer rut to the magical mists. Everywhere you turn is a great photo opportunity. Many of my best photos i have ever taken are from Richmond park.
The park manages to cram in so much wildlife in its 2360 acre patch. The main attraction in this season is the autumn deer rut. Where the stags battle it out for mating rights. all the battles are there to see before your very eyes, and amazing spectacle to take photos of. The smells and the sounds at this time are truly amazing.
Autumn also brings amazing colours to the park. The trees look amazing, with the all whole host of colours from the spectrum. This added with the autumn mists and fogs makes the park very atmospheric indeed. A great time and place for getting some really great photos.
Richmond park in the winter is a completely different place. For one the numbers of people have dwindled, leaving you to enjoy the park without being disturbed. There is a wonderful freshness in the air during these months.
Many species of bird come back to the park in spring and you will see offpring of many species like rabbits and baby deer, or if you go to the lakes you will see tadpoles emerging.
Richmond park photography in the summer months are better in the evening sunset, as you get the amazing yellow and oranges of the grasses.
