Every now and then I go into Richmond Park pre sunrise to capture the light as the sun breaks. This image was taken around 04:50am just as the sun broke the horizon.
I was lucky to find some fallow deer in the right location to capture them with the rising sun. I had to combine two exposures to ensure the sun didn’t blow out in the highlights. The sun was captured a few seconds after the deer and then composited in Affiny Photo to blend the images.
Shot with the Nikon D500 and AF 400mm f/2.8G
