Some scenes in infrared

More journeys and  walkabouts with my little  infrared camera.

Finally spring weather visits us on our cold wet island. It certainly lifts the spirits and ignites my zeal. I am an accomplished wanderer, sometimes the trail leads to something quite unexpected and amazing.  Sometimes  just the sight of sunlight illuminating a path is enough.  A quest always begins with a few deep breaths, a promise to stay in the moment,  and a double check of camera battery and sd card, not always in that order!   I set off where the spirit leads, and I don’t think I ever arrive!!

These were taken in the Juan de Fuca Park and at Shawnigan Lake, up island.  I have been experimenting both with a dedicated infrared point and click, and  settings and lenses on my Canon rebel, sometimes successfully and often times not.  The fun of post-processing often adds a  mood to some pieces where vision has exceeded  expertise.  It is such a learning process but the most important thing to me is the joy of discovery and the beauty of being out there!

the beauty of skunk cabbage

Lysichiton Americanus at sunset (beautiful, sunny, skunk cabbage)

I would half expect there to be little Buddhas or saints sitting inside the little hooded shrine of this marshland flower.
