When I first photographed the deer stag at Bucklebury Farm, Reading on a beautiful crisp sunny morning my original intention was to then head to the Scottish Highlands for a background to add him into.

However something about the picture I thought I wanted to do just didn’t ‘float my boat’ so I put it on the back burner. A few months later I was browsing 500px when I saw the picture of the fox in the snow. No idea why but I suddenly thought “Now that would look great it’s my deer stag picture”

So, playing in photoshop I made my Deer Stag and snow scene. Moral of the story…slow down. Don’t rush a picture because you never know where you may draw inspiration from that could change your original plans. Apologies but don’t know the name of the photographer who took the fox picture BUT whoever you are…thanks for the sharing it online and for the inspiration.

    Great photo, looking forward to a possible tutorial, as I don’t fancy trying to take a similar photo in those conditions. Fox photo is by Joshua Holko btw. If you look at his artic fox project you can see what he had to put up with to take the photos, think I’d be more comfortable behind the keyboard!
