Today, Michelle and I went for a walk at Dunham Massey, a beautiful National Trust estate in Cheshire which is home to lots of deer.

Whilst we were there a couple of stags had a fight.  On the one hand it was a privilege to see them battle but on the other it was quite sad to see as one of the stags got quite badly injured , I just hope he was ok.

Here are some of my favourite photographs from the day – hope you like them.  My next post should be some of my latest wedding photographs so please visit again soon!

    robert newman - The keep out sign really stands outto me, like it alot, although the other are great aswell, especially the second to last.

I’ve photographed two amazing weddings in the past week, the first at Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire and the second at Warrington Town Hall.  Both went really well and I can’t wait to to show the bride and grooms their photographs!  I’ll hopefully be posting some of my favourite photographs from these weddings to the blog soon so please watch this space!

Today though, Michelle and I went for a walk around Martin Mere Wetland Centre in Lancashire.  The centre is home to over 100 species of rare and endangered ducks, geese, swans, flamingos and otters.  It goes without saying that whilst we wandered around a took a few photographs, some of my favourites are below, hope you like them:-)

All the photographs were taken on my new Nikon D700 DSLR, which I am absolutely loving so far!
