Associate artist Mandy Rathbone :: sunrise project

may sunriseThursday 21st May – Kingston Russell Stone Circle – Sunrise 5.15am
Two deer grazing over by the far fence as I arrived in the field.  Sadly I could not get my camera set up properly on time to get a really good shot of them.  I have bought myself a new zoom lens which would have been ideal but had not got lens on camera, or camera on tripod, before they wandered away.  Still magic though.
