An Ageless Call …
comment on Flickr … there’s something primeval in this scene. However this magnificent fellow – an Imperial stag judging from the number of tines on his antlers – is just sounding recall. His herd was enjoying a swim in the Pen Ponds. Within a couple of minutes, four hinds showed up, followed by a number of brockets.

King of Bushy Park …
comment on Flickr … his Majesty had a rather busy morning. His harem was neatly surrounded by no less than eight very enterprising younger stags. He kept them at bay just by his menacing poses and yelling at the occasional wayward hind. But his rivals were wearing him down, staging mock fights among themselves to demonstrate how fit and ready they were. I left before first blood was drawn, but it was only a matter of time.

Second test of a new toy …
comment on Flickr … the XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS is quite something. Although getting the light right while moving through different wide focals is far from self evident. I lost some of the Summer clouds texture for instance. Another issue with the XT-4, although not specific to this lens, is that I still haven’t discovered the proper hardware/software combo to get at the RAW files. Their format is different from the XT-3 and X100F. That would have helped a lot with those clouds. The loss of texture is mostly an artefact of compression. xt4,summer,foliage,pond,reflection,landscape,uk,nw3,london,hampstead,hampsteadheath,viaductpond,dscf0128 CC BY-NC-ND 2.0
