The Grotto, Cleator


This is a unique shot of The Grotto, at Cleator, in the style of Kodak Aerochrome - an infrared film. The infrared film by Kodak was initially developed for government surveillance, forestry and industrial applications. The film is no longer in use. Aerochrome film was discontinued in 2007.

The technique used in producing this image is widely known as false-colour photography.

  • This image is available as: Framed Print, Canvas Print, Postcard, etc.
Infrared photography became popular with a number of 1960s recording artists, because of the unusual results; Jimi Hendrix, Donovan, Frank Zappa and the Grateful Dead all issued albums with infrared cover photos. The unexpected colours and effects that infrared film can produce fit well with the psychedelic aesthetic that emerged in the late 1960s.

Plants, including different types of trees and grass, reflect IR light to a slightly different degree. Therefore, they will produce different shades of red.

Modern day digital cameras have a infrared blocker over the sensor. For true infrared photography, the blocker needs to be removed and special filters used during shooting. Rather than potentially damage my camera and render it useless for normal photography, I use special software to recreate the style you see before you.
