A foggy walk in the wildlife park

Saturday was a day to my liking. Thick fog gave everything a beautifully mystical touch, a perfect afternoon for a walk in the nearby wildlife park. I love that wildlife park that is so close to my home, and which I don't visit enough. My favourite animals there are the moose. But unfortunately, we didn't see any of the at all this time. Many of the animals seem to have decided that a foggy day wasn't a good day to spend outside, so we didn't get to see as many of them as usual. 

Before I left home, I finally managed to get a sharp shot of a bird feeding in the little birdhouse outside my bedroom window. I've been hiding and freezing behind the open window several times, but never got a decent shot until today. A sweet little bluetit came to pick some food.

The deers are always out and always make for great photos, especially that stag, who posed so nicely for me.

To see one of the wildcats so close up also was a very special treat. They're usually hiding in the back, and when they move, are so fast that it is almost impossible to get a nice photo.

The wild horses where out as well.

No moose in sight in this eclosure either, but the beautiful reflections in the pond made up for it.

And of course the trees. I love trees. The more the merrier.


  1. These are really beautiful shots. I could almost feel i am there walking with you :) Thank you for sharing.

  2. Beautiful, beautiful shots! :)

  3. I love trees in the fog. The photo of them reflecting in the water is so intuitive. All the photos are inspiring but that one is breathtaking.

  4. I would be so proud and feel so lucky if these were my photos. Lucky to see these things, especially the stag and the cat, and proud that I could capture them so sympathetically.

  5. What a stunning post! I love each and every one of these photos but especially the stag - he is magnificent (I'd love to paint him if I could have your permission to use the photo as reference, please?) The old sepia/vintage tones in your photos adds to the already mystical feel of the foggy day - love!
