Rice Paddies With an IR Faux Color Mix

Thank you for stopping to view my latest post and hope you begin to "Follow" me on my photographic journey of discovery.

Yesterday we headed 2.5 hours north to “Tada Waterfalls” in AP in hope of shooting long exposure photography.

No luck as of course given 42 deg one should know it’s not winter anymore and waterfalls are most likely waterless.  Well, we did have water but it wasn’t falling – see you again in the monsoon season (Nov-Dec).

All was not lost as photographic opportunities often present themselves during the journey and not at the destination.

In my case, it was the 3x per year planting of rice that presented itself.  I took off my shoes and walked in mud calf-deep having the time of my life take photos.  I’m sure the farmers, men harvesting rice seedlings and the women planting the paddies thought these photographers were nuts.

Here are some IR images in Faux Colors..  What do you think, let me know.DaShanSheYing-1454

Here’s another one thrown in for Tada Waterfalls.


Still many images left to process using my newly learned Digital and Color  Zone System following the teachings of Ansel Adams, courtesy of Blake Rudis.  I will cover this in detail for my next post.

Thank you and keep stopping by to visit.
