I decided to head down to Richmond Park to scout out some potential compositions. After doing first doing some research online I had found a few interesting locations. The first one would be Pen Ponds for some nice reflections, maybe even during sunrise/sunset. The second location I found was King Henry’s Mound where you not only have a nice view down towards Twickenham there is also a telescope you let’s you see all the way to St Paul’s Cathedral. Last but not least is not even a destination, but some of the many wild deers you can find in Richmond Park. To my surprise they were really easy to spot and did not seem too shy of humans. Some people went up really close to take pictures. Much closer than what I would have done as they are big animals with very pointy bits sticking out of their heads. I guess they did not have a zoom lens attached.
As I never been to Richmond Park before I decided not to bring anything but my camera with a single lens. The Saturday I went there turned out be a pretty dull day with clouds and rain, which made it a rather rushed scouting trip. No composition stood out to me enough to lure me back for sunrise at 6am, but I think I will try again when there is no rain so I can spend more time exploring Richmond Park.
