Parched paddocks

The colours may be different but the sadness still feels the same...
Really like the IR effects !

@tinley23 Hi Lesley - thanks for your kind comment but I'm afraid it is totally undeserved. This is actually sooc - it was taken with a camera converted to infra red - and these are the colours that the sensor "sees". I find the results fascinating as you never know quite what you have caught as you see the normal colours through the eyepiece. Thanks for your ineterest. Cheers Rob

@fbailey Hi FB - thanks for having a look and for your comment. We have a few areas where farmers still have a working bore and can irrigate a crop - it's fascinating what the different greens do - as you say - some of them are like snow. The new camera is sooo much fun - I fear it is pretty addictive! Cheers Rob

So many areas in drought, l feel quite sad really

Speaks volumes about the dryness. FAV!

Sure makes the point well Rob.

It's a fascinating juxtaposition. The IR makes it look like snow but of course it is excessive dryness instead.

Interesting

This image is quite impressive in IR. The elements of landscape are perfectly recognizable but the colours are so different that the eye gets puzzled and a bit anxious. Since all usual colour references are lost, it is more difficult to interpret the dryness of the land than it would be with the ordinary colour spectrum.

Fav. Wonderful edit to a lovely picture.

@etienne Hi Etienne Thanks for your thoughtful comment - I think it has explained why these have such a surreal feeling to them. This one is sooc - I have tried, not very successfully, to swap the red and blue channels to give them a more b&w feel - but I think I like them like this better anyway. Not the sort of thing you can post too often though... Thanks again for our interest and comments. Cheers Rob.

@sangwann Hi Dione - thanks for your comment. Funnily enough this is sooc. It is from a camera which has been converted to record Infra Red light - hence the different colours. It's really fun to play with. Cheers Rob

This looks wonderful Rob, are your negatives look red aswell? I have only a ir filter but as I'm timepoor at the moment i've not done very much with it.

@jacqbb That's an interesting question Jacqueline - I'v only tried an invert on a close up which was mainly white and a dull pjnk. The negative was bright red in parts - pretty dramatic really. I'll have a go at a landscape and see what happens. If it's any good I'll put it up tomorrow. Cheers Rob

@jacqbb I just tried it - the sky went blue and the trees went a dark grey - not very nice! :)
