Back in the 1970′s I spent some time taking black and white infrared photographs at Green Lakes State Park in Fayetteville, NY. Those photographs became known as my “Isles of Light” series – my most successful series of photographs as far as other viewers were concerned. It was a featured exhibit at Soho Photo in New York City, and photos from that series appeared in various other exhibits.

These photographs remind me of that “Isles of Light” series. Some of them were taken at the Christman Sanctuary, which offers scenic walks through fields and woods and along the Bozenkill.
