Memories: Of Longer Days | 720nm Infrared | 35:Chronicle

black & white, infrared, landscape, photography

As the Winter Solstice Approaches.

Already, I miss the higher sun, the longer days and, of course, my photo-walks around this rural haven that I call home. These few frames were among the last infrared captures I had made not too many weeks after the segue from summer, to autumn. Yes, I do miss my IR walks. The sun, the warmth, the solitude and, the searching – for the almost ethereal – are to me, those things that I enjoy most about it. As I look forward to next year’s spring, I shall embrace these shorter, darker, colder days – for their own challenges will become my own; but, I long for the light. If only to see scenes like these through my viewfinder again.

  1. I’m with you on the Winter Solstice. It’s a contracting time of year. Gray and cold here. As always, I love the detail in your photos and the composition. The trees look ice covered – something that happens here from time to time when we get “freezing-fog.” And the rows in the fields draw you in – perspective that makes it 3 dimensional 🙂

    1. Sometimes my hurried compositions can lead to mistakes and, in frame two, I felt that the clouds were too high in the frame, but the plough lines leading in, were the reason I wanted to capture it so, I didn’t want to shorten the bottom third of the frame. Sometimes I’m still not sure but, I like it for what it is. I love how an IR landscape can fool the eye sometimes too, but whenever I remember bright sunny days, in my mind, this is the light I always see. I’m very happy that you like them! Thank you! 🙏 Best, Rob.

  2. It is always pleasant to see summer photos in winter! Thank you for bringing a piece of summer!
    P.S. But I will keep on waiting for more of your macros and still lifes! Ha-ha!

    1. I’m happy that you like them, Alena! Yes, I do wish summer was still here and find myself a little nostalgic already. I’m so impatient! My macro lens died on me so I’m currently going back to a previous setup for macro-work, which I’m actually rather happy about. Watch this space! 🤪
