Can you see a deer on this picture?
I can not do that either. But that should be.
In any case, I had planned to photograph a roaring deer in the sunrise. So the other day I drove early in the morning and arrived before sunrise to “Jægersborg Dyrehave” north of Copenhagen. A lovely morning walk, a beautiful place and lots of fresh air and a temperature of about 0 degrees celsius, but the deer had not heard that. It never pops up. It might have forgotten our deal, so this picture of the Erimentage castle in “Jægersborg Dyrehave” is from the same trip. In fact, there was no sunrise either.
However, I also took pictures of some deer, but not someone I want to show to others. Such is life as a photographer. Sometimes it does not go as planned. Then you have to try another time.
“Dyrehaven (Danish ‘The Deer Park’), officially Jægersborg Dyrehave, is a forest park north of Copenhagen. It covers around 11 km2 (4.2 sq mi). Dyrehaven is noted for its mixture of huge, ancient oak trees and large populations of red and fallow deer. In July 2015, it was one of the three forests included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site inscribed as Par force hunting landscape in North Zealand.
All entrances to the park have a characteristic red gate; one of the most popular entrances is Klampenborg gate, close to Klampenborg station. All the entrance gates have an identical gate house attached to them, which serve as the residences of the forest wardens. Dyrehaven is maintained as a natural forest, with the emphasis on the natural development of the woods over commercial forestry. Old trees are felled only if they are a danger to the public. It has herds of about 2100 deer in total, with 300 Red Deer, 1700 Fallow Deer and 100 Sika Deer. Dyrehaven is also the venue for the Hermitage road race (Eremitageløbet) and the yearly Hubertus hunt (Hubertusjagten) which is held on the first Sunday in November. In former times it was home to the Fortunløbet race, later known as Ermelundsløbet, but this race was discontinued in 1960.”
