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