Invisible Light at the Cemetery

Seeing the world of peace and the afterlife in Infrared.

I used to visit a cemetery regularly as a teen.  I found peacefulness there and reverence in most people who were there with me.  It was an escape, a res bit, an oasis, a place to find quiet.  This is not “the cemetery” of my youth, but a lovely one here in the hometown of my adulthood.  It brought me back to that “place” of peace.  Experiencing it with infrared and capturing it is a new experience. I wished to show the ethereal, the foreboding, the peace.

I was also thinking about the shadows in my compositions, so you will see shadows and highlights as the main subject in many of them.
