I regularly see a lot of rabbits on my morning walks around Dunmow. Today, I had my infra-red camera with me so wondered what a rabbit would look like…wonder no more – I like how the eye has come out particularly.


Was working in Great Yarmouth so stopped off on the way home at Caister-on-Sea to photograph the sand-dunes with my infra-red camera.

I’m the Chairman of Bishop’s Stortford Camera Club for the next two years. The season runs from September to April, but we always run a series of events throughout the year on most Tuesdays and occasional Saturdays. This year’s first Saturday trip was to the Henry Moore Studios and Gardens in dreadful weather for photography…blazing sunshine!

This is a detail of a larger image of this tree…I preferred the detail on the leaves that you get in this cropped down version…see below for the original version…

I’ve taken this shot a few times and never really been happy with the result…here’s an infra-red version…still not happy!


We drove out to Broxbourne Woods today for a walk. We hadn’t been for a few years so it was nice to see again. The Infra-Red camera got another outing…not as successful as previously, mainly because there wasn’t much new green life yet, but I still enjoyed this selection of shots…

Killed by salt water, this is the second time I have photographed these trees…and the second time that I forgot my tripod when photographing these trees…which was incredibly annoying as there was a good breeze and the clouds were zooming across the sky…next time perhaps.

I was pleased with this infra-red shot though.


We visited Rainham Hall today which is a different type of national Trust property in that, because it has had over 50 different occupants with no one family using for any length of time, it doesn’t have a consistent history, so it has been used as a family home, a photographers studio and a Day Nursery, amongst other things.

The current display which opened yesterday is about its time as a Day Nursery during and after the second world war. It was very interesting and nice to come across that sort of institution where all the children appear to have been well looked after and were very happy whilst there.

If you want to see a rather more standard shot of the Hall…

Back in March (!) I got my old Nikon D60 converted to infrared and went out and shot a whole load of Infrared images. I couldn’t suss out how best to process them and got a bit fed up and put them to one side.

I finally got round to working out how best to process them and really like the results. I now can’t wait for next spring to get out and shoot some more infrared shots and get more into this side of photography.

Here’s Doctors Pond in Great Dunmow…not sure why but (ignoring the cars) this has a 1950’s feel to it.

More from Rowney Woods. The effect makes it look like the trees are full of cherry blossom

The process has an interesting effect on the colour of clothes.
