My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Sir Thomas would turn in his grave, George. I’m not actually a fan of IR photography, but with this image in front of me, I’m beginning to appreciate it a bit more. Maybe it’s the “normal” sky that gives a reference point.

  • A land where everyone must be a farmer and gold is a commodity to be hated? Communal meals and moon-worshipers? I think Sir Moore would wholeheartedly approve! LOL Thanks Stefan, I’m still struggling in my own mind with the scientific (ie. red-brown) vs. surral (ie. ice-blue) Infrared renditions… The jury is still out :-) I’m glad you like it though!

  • Er…“More” typo… :-(

    This is ace George! To be able to capture IR at this quality without long shutter speeds will open up a whole new world of opportunities! I look forward to seeing more…

  • Thanks Paul, I’m still very fascinated with the sharpness and the contrast. Holidays are coming up and I can then experiment a little bt further afield than my local lake :-) Many thanks for the favoring!
