this is an infrared view of Wimberry Rocks at Dovestones, as well as the most photographed tree there. Listed as a 'Notable Tree' by the Woodland Trust (ID 14774) This common sycamore tree is easy to spot, standing on its own above the reservoir. Wimberry Rocks, also know locally as Indians Head, is a large gritstone cliff due to its shape, like an Indian looking up to the sky. Infrared light isn't visible to the eye, so the photographs created with either infrared film or a converted sensor have a surreal, almost dreamlike element to them. The infrared light reflects off the chlorophyll in foliage. making it almost white. The more chlorophyll in a leaf or a blade of grass, the brighter it will appear in the image. More chlorophyll also means the foliage is healthy. This image was created with Rollei infrared film and a R72 infrared filter. It was given a split process effect in software to give it the blue and yellow look.
