Monochrome Madness – An infrared lake

Monochrome Madness - An infrared lake

This morning I was looking for a photo to do for Monochrome Madness and then I found a lake that was photographed with the infrared camera.

Last year when I went up to my mum’s place I took the infrared camera to a local lake and took some images as we walked around it. You can get some really interesting effects with infrared and I really like seeing what you can capture.

It does always seem to work best when you have plants in some way. Gum trees are not as succulent as other trees, but infrared works okay. Really the tree trunks are probably the best parts. I should do a series on them.

As you can see it was a very sunny afternoon and there were almost no clouds. You can see the sun on the lake and coming through the trees. A friend told me conditions like this were great for infrared, what do you think?

Joining in

It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you enjoy the monochrome images. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook groupTPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.

  1. My colleague, Tom Doherty, has been shooting a lot of infrared in multiple settings in the posts we’ve doing on droning where he mixes infrared with the photos he captures with the help of his drone. You’re right, though. It just doesn’t always show the dramatic effect in all settings. But it’s a damn beautiful option.

    1. I love using it, your project sounds interesting. I found when I went to Tasmania last time that I loved using the infrared more than the other camera. It captured things in such a unique way. I love it for trees.
      Thank you Pat.
