I has been one of those magnificent summer days with bright sunshine, blue skies and lots of fluffy white clouds. As such my thoughts turned to infra-red photography and I popped out briefly with my IR-converted Olympus E-P1 mirrorless camera. I tried a few different shots with mixed results but the one above, of the coachhouse here at Lochalsh Woodland Walks, was by far the best. The trouble with bright sunshine is it can sometimes lead to lense flare if the angles are wrong, especially at wider angles, so several of my attempts were less than perfect as a result. That being said, it is always good to practice, and it is the first time I have been able to test the IR method on a truly suitable day. The following are a few of the other examples, some in black & white and some in the 'goldie' format.
I am an amateur photographer who is also a Chartered Geographer with his own part-time consultancy business and I work as an estate manager for a national conservation charity in Scotland. I am based in Lochalsh, Wester Ross, Scotland, just next to the Isle of Skye.
