Looking for suitable subject was a learning process when I started shooting with infrared film. I quickly learned that this versatile film worked wonderfully well in some situations, and disastrously poor in others. Around this time I had been in the mode of taking a lot of water shots and came across this scene in the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

With this image I saw that infrared photography, amongst other things, could offer a sense of calm, a sense of place. I have printed this image in a myriad of interpretations, and this may be the most high contrast of those choices.
