Reaching up for the sky

Walking along East Water Lane, and looking up to my left; 7 Aug 2014.

Another infrared-style image, this time given a bluish, cyanotype tone.  There are other IR-type images from this session, here and here.

D800 with 12-24 Sigma at 14mm; 100 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Strong Infrared High Contrast preset, and adding a strong cyanotype tone; rotated and flipped.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Just passing for long enough to spot this rather good image Adrian. It is the type of image that I so often try to resist shooting, wondering whether it would be worth it, but when I see this I can see that I am making a mistake. Infrared- style certainly suits it. Expect to see more trees when I get back to posting! Dave.

    I can see the face, and it reminded me instantly of “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer.

    I really love the color tones in this. Especially the sky in between the branches. What a beautiful image, like arms holding up the world!

      Hello, Carrie! I’m glad you like this, thank you – and the reasons you give are very much in line with my feelings – we think the same!

      And looking at it again now, maybe the small mass of ?fern in the trunk’s fork is a beard, below a face mostly lost in the darkness immediately above it? I can see the illuminated tip of its nose and to the left a suggestion of an eye socket – its looking down at us as it holds up the world. Good to hear from you! Adrian 🙂
