Goyt Valley IR 3 by Okavanga Goyt Valley IR 3 by Okavanga
The Goyt Valley and its reservoirs [link] are popular and scenic areas near to Manchester. Here are some snaps from the valley itself and the surrounding countryside, shot in infrared.

Gnarled old tree near Erwood House.

Thank you, Coco. I'm going back to the locality soon,maybe even today as the Sun has come out, so I'm going to look for more of these garden historians.

Cheers

Good point, Oriole! I thought I saw a black clad figure with a pointy hat and a broom flying around.

Now that is an old tree!

It is that, Sheri. I'm not sure what species it is, possibly and oak. What is not apparent is that this tree is in the grounds of an old mansion house called Errwood Hall. When the reservoirs were built, the house and grounds were abandoned and the garden left to run riot. These trees must date from when the house was first built a couple of hundred years ago, probably.

Cheers

IR works well here - it seems to remove what in colour could be a distracting background ! Nice monochromatic finish ..

Good point, Richard - note that the tree is covered in moss, but moss does not "do" IR well - just comes out grey.

Cheers
