Every year I eagerly anticipate the arrival of Autumn and the Red Deer Stag Rut. Richmond Park is a great place to see this spectacle, a real wilderness in the heart of London. Arriving before dawn, the peaceful silence is punctured by the guttural bellows of the Stags, and as the sun rises the pace gathers. There’s something almost primeval about it, and it was this that I wanted to try and convey.
