Got up at 5.
Drove to Longshaw Estate and met up with some photo peeps for the first deer photo session of the season.
Took back up shot involving floaty dress (not needed) just in case. This involved taking my watch off.
A wild stag appears!
In the excitement forget all about watch as pack up and move to another location.
Almost back at car. Remember lost watch. Trudge all the way back up to attempt to find watch.
Search frantically for 10 minutes in heather and long grass but cannot find watch.
Remember watch sync’s with phone.
Turns on phones Bluetooth. Watch sync’s up so must be close by. Search for another 10 minutes. Turn around in desperation about to give up – spots watch!
Walks back to car, herd of deer bounce across the path.
Shoot shot 3 (second below this text).
tl;dr – Don’t take you watch off in moorlands leave it on the floor and forget about it.

These are fantastic! Glad you found your watch.
I’m glad I found it too, surprised I did. Next time I’ll be more careful and put it in my bag!
Hello, Manadh, you have another post up on ‘strata of the self’:
Excellent sequence. Great background incident. 🙂
When in the moorlands, watch where you step. You might break a hand and lose track of time.
