Lee Valley in infrared

My 3rd attempt at infrared  along the Lee (Lea) Valley Canal towpath in East London.

It was an amazing bright day so i jumped on my bike and headed to east london via the East London Line from New Cross.

I had originally intended on filming plants along the waterside for my live cinema show ‘Hortus’ (currently in development), but as I had my stills camera with me, I slapped on the Hoya filter and snapped away.

Abstract Nature

I’ve been experimenting with photographing plant forms using semi-macro lenses then processing the imagery with a number of different filters to produce quite graphic abstract forms.

Here are some examples of what I’ve produced.
