All Along The Watch Towers

October 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This is a series of photographs that were made from or of various watch towers or light houses we encountered along the coast of Ireland. Once again these were made with an IR converted Nikon D200 camera. I like the surrealistic quality of infrared images, they add a somewhat haunted and etherial feel to the depiction of some of these abandoned sites.
