This is a series of monochrome conversions of selected images from the previous six posts on St Kilda.  In those posts these mono images appear as colour and there is often detailed commentary including historical notes.  For information and context about St Kilda and these images, see those previous posts starting at Arrival at St Kilda.

The following eight images are infrared, shot using an R72 filter.  Some are colour and some are mono conversions.  None have snow; that’s just how grass and leaves can come out in infrared.

Unlike the mono images, there are no colour versions of them in other posts.  The exposures were all taken within a half hour period.  I brought my monopod to shore (though it should really have been my tripod) and I then discovered that I had left the head for it on the ship.  Consequently they are all hand-held at high ISOs.  This produced a lot of noise but then this is in line with the excessive grain often found in monochrome infrared film photography and I think actually assists the images.

    Love the monochrome of the houses/stonework/buildings. Normally I prefer colour but here the setting, history and mist all are enhanced by the lack of colour, to me it seems to add to the tragedy of the place.
