Spellbound in the Spectrum

More island wanderings

(in infrared)

Meet me in that place of light and shadow.

I am strolling there,

Between dreams, and waking


And  I don’t forget my Canon that started me onto all this visual alchemy:

Hoofing it
ladies hoofing it








These does were as surprised to see me as I was them. They ran off into the woods. I used my zoom quickly and did not get a crisp photo, so I fear I won’t be a good wildlife photographer, but then I found this little spring!!

There have been cougar sightings so it “may” be more prudent to stick closer to home. It is advised to carry a big stick and shout loudly and don’t run!  Not that I ever panic!! 😀

    The first image is amazing… It takes my breath away. Wow!
    Stay away from those cougars and be safe.

        Its truly wonderful, the way its tucked in there… And your image is so dreamy.


  4. You need to carry “bear spray” – if it is available where you are 🙂
    Nice shots – looking good with your IR shooting!


    1. thank you Robert!! bear spray!! Good idea though I’d probably fumble and drop it!! 😀


      1. And don’t have any Snicker chocolate bars about your person, as bears love them and they won’t wait politely for you to hand them their treat, either!
