Been up on the chalk downland again – and wide open spaces in the sunshine have to mean one thing, Infrared. All hand-held using the Sony RX100 + R72 filter and heavily post-processsing in Photoshop and DXO.
The conditions were perfect – light broken cloud and strong sunshine which means some texture in the sky an a strong infrared response.
This is the remains of an old field boundary – these thorn bushes are all that’s left in an otherwise empty landscape.
This road is beautifully straight. running along a long shallow valley. I did a few of this as the contrast between the tarmac and the ir-reflecting vegetation was very strong.
Slightly different post-processing on this one to allow the whites of the grass to burn out a little – usually a sin but worked out well for this one.
Finally one in a favoutite location, where the clear chalk stream turns a bend, and a line of poplar trees makes a nice background.
Thanks for looking – hope you like them!
