My fascination with infrared photography dates back to 1998 when I was illustrating the John Schaefer books: The Ansel Adams Guide: Basic Techniques of Photography.  My challenge was to show the effect of BW infrared film. Jump ahead 17 years and the digital world and Leica led to me having their miniature D-Lux 6 in my pocket for a 2015 trip to Ireland.

A couple of months before the trip, I was playing with the camera and had a “what if?” moment. I dug out the Wrattan #87 IR filter I had used back in ‘98 and put it over the lens of the Leica. It could see infrared without any modification! I ordered a screw-in IR filter and off we went to the Emerald Isle.

We stayed with friends just south of Dublin, and during our excursions to some amazing locations, I started photographing things lit by light humans cannot see. I experimented with roses and other plants and a bit of landscape, but my real jaw-dropper was a visit to the ancient ruins and monuments in Glendalough. It was a gray day with a wonderful mood and uncrowded enough for me to have moments of blissful quiet. Because the little camera was mirrorless, I could see the effect of light on the cross and grasses, and was able to capture that moment of bliss!
