Early Autumn and morning mist add to the quiet and softness of this scene. A young buck has come to drink and enjoy the quiet, but he has heard a sound behind him and so is on the alert for who or what may come through the mist, could be someone else looking for the same thing or it could be something more!

Original image taken at Rogue Elk Park with HDR effects added with Dynamic Photo. Using Photoshop layers, the Image was then filtered thru Dreamy Photo. The Buck was added as a composite, lighting effects added using render then lighting effects.

I’m a 65 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
