Infrared and Rivers

On my trip to Sgwd Gwladus yesterday, I stopped at a picturesque viewpoint along the river. I set up the camera as usual and shot some normal photos. I then wondered how it would look with my Infrared camera so I got it out. It’s always difficult to see what you’re getting with Infrared but the results on the LCD looked promising. When I processed them later, I found that I preferred the ‘false colour’ Infrared.

Here is the same image converted to black and white:

And here is the visible colour photo:

I personally think that the Infrared vastly improves on the scene and adds detail where the colour image fails, especially on the foreground rock.
