One photographer has been chasing a particular shot for a number of years, and in this video, watch behind the scenes as he spends a week trying to get it just right in the United Kingdom's Peak District.
Have you got any shots that seem to elude you or that are on your bucket list? If we take the time to think about it, I imagine we all have some shots we would love to capture. Over the years, I have had many, some I have ticked off, some I haven't managed to. What the subject is, doesn't really matter. I know some will watch this video and wonder why Nigel Danson wants to capture heather, though personally, I can understand it. But, the subject of the images you are trying to capture isn't important. At times, you get a shot in your head that clings on for dear life and you just can't seem to capture it.
I have a few that come to mind when I ask myself this question. There is one, however, that I believe I have never managed to capture. Where I live isn't exactly prolific for landscape or wildlife, however, I have estates and woodlands near me that are known for their large deer populations. I have seen local photographer friends capture incredible pictures of these deer at sunrise, but I haven't managed it myself. I have pictures of deer at varying times, some of them are even reasonably interesting, but the epic, isolated, back-lit stag that lives in my mind, I cannot seem to get.
What shot has managed to elude you?
