Deer, Czech Republic

Photograph by Veronika Kolev, My Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

I was walking in the field, taking pictures of the winter landscape, when suddenly several deer, frightened by me, jumped out of the nearby bushes and fled. I managed quickly to change the program of my camera and took some panning pictures. Šumava National Park, Czech Republic.

The gravity in this situation is unrealistic. Very magical

This picture is amazing I like how you gto the backgroud blurred out so then it looks like the deer is going fast.Fantastic picture love it.

Really nice and difficult shot! The blurred background gives some dynamic and makes the deer stand out. But it's the details such as the sunset light and its catch light in the deer's eye that completes this art. Well done Veronika!
