IR: Rossendale Way

I’m not 100% sure if the name of the location for these photographs is correct, but I kept seeing signposts with this route marked out while walking, so I figured it’d fit!

These were taken while out on a family walk near the three reservoirs in the area. Much fun was had by all, but sadly the batteries ran out on my Infrared Camera part way through the walk (so I switch to my colour compact instead, which I shall share later in the week after editing/sorting through them)

I feel like I am getting a real ‘taste’ for this while infrared malarkey! Like most hobbies, it is addictive and I am looking at trying to fit some more in or figuring out if I can make a camera upgrade (Or if I feel I need too.) Mostly, I am just happy to be behind a camera again and sharing my snaps! I did a little photoediting on the last one to remove the dust mark as it was far, far too distracting.

Infrared Photography looks best in with bright blue skies on a full-sunshine day (The complete opposite of miniature photography!) but because I live near Manchester, these days are few and far between so I’ll take what I can get in terms of weather and days out with the camera!!

This was a fantastic location with a lot to discover and look at! It helped because the kiddo was entertained by another hobby (Again, a post later on in the week about that) and we will certainly be going back now that we have figured out some of the walking routes and won’t need to do any back-tracking – all part of the adventure I know. It would be nice to be able to go back during a brighter day too, to see the stronger sunlight effects Infrared Photography has on the water. (I think it turns it really dark!?)
