Rope swing over the creek - Infrared Photography

in photography •  22 days ago  (edited)

I am amazed by the old trees I see along the trail, they must be hundreds of years old. One of these real old trees had a rope swing on it. Looks to be attached to a real strong branch, and had an interesting look with the roots growing out from its base.

A portrait orientation shot showing how tall the tree is, along with the infrared sky. Since I was using my 720 nanometer screw on passthrough filter it was giving the sky a yellow color.

Walking the trail down to the rope swing, there was a steep area but luckily someone before me attached some rope to some trees so I could easily hold on while climbing. I would have had to put my camera away to traverse this area otherwise.

It was nice someone left it there for others to use, Im guessing many people have passed through the area with the help of the guide ropes.

Once I descend into the region with the rope swing, I saw many trees that were hollowed out. Gave the area an eerie feeling.

Many ferns were growing along the banks, drinking up the water from the creek and doing pretty well there from the looks of it.

The creek goes on for many miles, just one little spot along the way people have had fun at. It would be hard to kayak and canoe on this creek though due to all the fallen trees across the water.

I take pictures with a special camera. Its a Mirrorless DSLR that has been modified by Life Pixel to see light in other wavelengths. This allows my camera to see light in the Infrared [IR] around 1300 NM wavelength, through the visual spectrum and into the Ultraviolet A and B wavelengths roughly into the 300 NM wavelength.

I carry many filters on me to make the photos you see in my blog, these filters screw on my lens and help me isolate certain wavelengths for certain scenes. These filters can be IR / UV pass-through filters to assist me get a natural photo taking out the UV and IR light. Or I may use a Infrared pass-through filter capture just IR light. I can do the same with UV light as well, though I need some better filters which they can cost a few hundred dollars for true Ultraviolet pass through filters. So for right now I have B + W 403 bandpass filters that still allow some IR light in, due to their cheaper material.

There are also exotic glasses made of sapphire and germanium I am open to working with to replace my silica glass hot mirror with a material that allows even longer wavelengths of infrared to enter my cameras sensor. Special sensors, lenses and filters of that material would be needed as well, so it would be a big project but one that may give some even more unique photography results.

That's a great shot of that tree. I love the way it's clinging to the outcrop of land along the stream.

@momzillanc thanks alot, yeah the way they lean into the creek has an interesting look to it.
