Photo Gallery: Infrared Dreamfields

The State of Baden-Württem­berg's horti­cultural show of 2002 in Ost­fildern (near Stutt­gart), South Germany beared the title "Dream­fields" ("Traum­felder").  During a visit, I used an infra­red film (a short expla­nation of an infrared false-color film's behaviour is here).  Additionally, there are infra­red pictures of the is­land of Madeira which is a dream island for some people.

The valley of the river Ribeira da Janela in infrared false-color photograph, Island of Madeira, 2003 When I was hiking along the water canal "Levada de Ribeira da Janela" in Madeira's in­terior, I came across a view­point where I could see over mountain slopes rich in vege­tation.  All the living trees and shrubs appear bright red. The southwest coast at the lighthouse in Ponta do Pargo in infrared false-color photograph, Island of Madeira, 2003 From a view­point just below the light­house in Ponta do Pargo in Madeira's extreme west, there is a unique view over the south­west coast.  Where the rocks are covered with living plants, they appear in a bright red color. Mountain village Espigão in infrared false-color photograph, Island of Madeira, 2005 From a Levada (water canal), I saw a part of the mountain village Espigão that lies on a narrow ridge that falls steeply into the valley.  The evening sun fell on the houses while the slope on the opposite is al­ready almost covered in shadow (upper border of picture).
