Mid-week Monochrome, #126, 19 April 2023
I don’t often have the opportunity to participate in the Mid-week Monochrome challenge but today I was out with the Gameboy and came across this wonderful lonely tree that was just begging for some infrared loving. Taken with a Samsung A70 smartphone and a Hoya 720nm Infrared filter.
Roadside flowers #MacroMonday, 03 April 2023
It’s a lovely day, so I went for a walk and enjoyed the sun. Looks like the spring flowers, and those who feed on them, were thinking the same. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2023/04/roadside-flowers-macromonday-03-april.html
It’s #flyday Friday, 13 January 2023
For the first #FlyDay Friday of the year here’s a fly that we spotted sunning itself. Hope everyone has a great day. #fliesarebeautiful
An ominous sign on the horizon, 27 August 2022
After a lovely start to the day, late in the afternoon the clouds rolled in and it turned cold. We decided to call it a day, and headed home. Typically, about two minutes before we arrived at our holiday flat the skies cleared again.
A trip through the woods, 23 August 2022
After weeks of cloudless skies, this morning we awoke to a sky full of wispy cirrus clouds. It was the perfect weather to take out the full spectrum Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter, on our daily walk to the beach. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/a-trip-through-woods-23-august-2022.html
Street photography in the only street in Fetais, 23 August 2022
A recent Twitter poll was asking about street photography, which encouraged me to get out in Fetais with the full-spectrum Lumix and the Urth IR filter. Now, where’s that street again? http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/street-photography-in-only-street-in.html
Appearing in a clear blue sky, 22 August 2022
We’ve been blessed with clear skies for much of our holiday. Today the first wispy clouds appeared in an otherwise cloudless sky. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/cloudscapes-22-august-2022.html
Went a little full-spectrum crazy today, 12 August 2022
Out early in Meco this morning for some IR with the modified Lumix and the Urth IR filter. However, I decided to dispense with the filter and just go ‘commando’. These full-spectrum shots came out really nice. I think I need to fiddle with the colour channels to get more of an ‘aerochrome’ look (andContinue reading “Went a little full-spectrum crazy today, 12 August 2022”
Revisiting some old favourites under clear skies, 12 August 2022
Of course, although I went full-spectrum the plan was always to take some infrared photographs with the Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth IR filter. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/revisiting-some-old-favourites-under.html
It’s a bugs life, 09 August 2022
It’s not a real holiday if I don’t spend at least a part of it chasing a bug across the sand … http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/its-bugs-life-09-august-2022.html
When a plan doesn’t quite come together, 08 August 2022
After a mixed start the sun came out and I took the chance to pop out to revisit a few places in Fetais near Meco with the full-spectrum Lumix and the Urth IR filter. Unfortunately, as soon as I went out the clouds rolled in leaving a hazy and cloudy day. Still, I persisted andContinue reading “When a plan doesn’t quite come together, 08 August 2022”
Hidden from the world, 07 August 2022
Tucked away half way up the cliff we traverse to get to the beach, and camouflaged against potential threats and also it’s prey, is this magnificent beast. I have no idea what species it is, but isn’t it wonderful? Every day for the past week and a half, at least, I’ve been trying to getContinue reading “Hidden from the world, 07 August 2022”
Urban infrared photography in Meco, 04 August 2022
After a cloudy start the sun eventually cleared to leave a decently sunny day. So it was a chance to pop out to explore Meco with the full-spectrum Lumix and the Urth IR filter. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/urban-infrared-photography-in-meco-04.html
A foggy start to the day, 1 August 2022
After a glorious week, we woke up Monday morning to a really thick fog. The area around Meco exists as a microclimate, and while the rest of the country was basking (!?) in up to 40°C heat here it did not get much over the mid twenties Celsius. However, it was a grand opportunity toContinue reading “A foggy start to the day, 1 August 2022”
Finally the wind died down, 30 July 2022
After a few frustrating days, the wind died down and my plan to take the full spectrum Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter to the beach was a possibility. Thankfully, the early afternoon sun made the trees glow in the sunlight and the photographs of our walk to the beach exceeded myContinue reading “Finally the wind died down, 30 July 2022”
Late afternoon in the woods, 26 July 2022
The original plan was to take the full spectrum Lumix and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter to the beach, but it was so windy I didn’t want to take any risks with the camera, I’ve already cleaned out one large grain of sand from the sensor and I didn’t want to go through that experienceContinue reading “Late afternoon in the woods, 26 July 2022”
Ferias 2022: Day 0, 25 July 2022
We’re off on our annual pilgrimage to Meco. After a casual and uneventful journey we arrived at our holiday home before resting and heading out for a bite to eat at the best restaurant in Alfarim, the Tasca do Marcio. #coast, #coastline, #landscape, #bridhe, #nature, #old, #portugal, #portuguese, #sea, #lisboa, #street, #town, #traditional, #travel, #village,Continue reading “Ferias 2022: Day 0, 25 July 2022”

Remembering the Poppies, 29 May 2022
They’re all gone now. But this from the beginning of April is a reminder that while they lasted the poppies in the nearby field were a glorious sight.
