Meadowlily Bridge in Infrared Light

Taken may 29, 2015, from underneath Meadowlily bridge, which is the dividing line between the Meadowlily Woods ESA operated by the city of London and the land owned by the Thames Talbot Land Trust. Taken with specially modified camera that shoots only black & white infrared light. Light visible to the human eye goes roughly from 400nm (violet) to 700nm (deep red). The spectrum of this photo is from 780 to 850 nm, far beyond the range of human vision. In this light, all healthy green plants appear white as they reflect IR light. Unhealthy plants will not appear white, which is why IR photography can sometimes to be used to identify sick plants and trees (fungus, disease, insects, etc) before the problem becomes visible to the human eye. enjoy


Meadowlily Bridge on the Thames

I was riding my bike along the Thames River at 7am one July morning in 2015. The fog was so thick, it leaves these colour photographs with a black and white feel.


Meandering through Harris Park

The Thames River is seen in late summer meandering from Blackfriars Bridge, past Harris Park on its way to The Forks.


Medway Valley Heritage Forest

Taken in April 2012, this creek flows into the Thames River through the Environmentally Significant Area of the Medway Valley Heritage Forest in North London.

After about 5 minutes in these conditions.. you really know what being human is about, warmth.

Early morning, just east of Veteran's Memorial Parkway. Loved the reflection of the sun on the water through the odd shaped tree.

North Branch Thame sRiver, Ben Benedict, 2009

The photo was taken during a sketching trip with fellow artist Ruth Strebe in 2009. I love the intensity and immediacy of the rocks juxtaposed against the sweeping treeline and solitary tree standing guard in the background.
