A misty morning at the beginning of autumn and magical deer on the magnificent long walk at Windsor Great Park. What could be better? When the power of the media reminds you of something that is accessible and beautiful and makes you just want to go there. This breathtaking photo captures everything in one moment and you just want to experience the same thing for real.
With scores of deer gathered in picturesque parkland at dawn as a September mist shrouds Windsor Castle in the distance, this striking image looks straight out of a fairytale. Stags, hinds and fawns can be seen making the most of the early morning peace on the magnificent Long Walk at Windsor Great Park, which runs for more than two and a half miles. Without the usual crowds of tourists, the normally shy creatures are free to roam across the dewy grass, emerging from low mist and the lines of horse chestnut and London plane trees into the morning light along the famous ascent to the castle.
