CFFC: Opposing Colours

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Opposing Colours.

The first photo came to mind immediately, the second took me a while to come up with.

Ice on Lake Huron at sunset. Taken in the spring when the ice was breaking up. It’s the only time I have seen ice formations like these.

A false colour photo of a model of the Influenza virus. Produced for the cover of a book on Influenza research I deliberately used opposing colours for some versions.

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Alternative Version.

The prompt got me thinking about some of the photos I have taken when I gave an editor alternative versions. That made me think of one shoot in particular.

In the early 1980s I developed a process that allowed me to produce false colour photos from a monochrome original. Somehow the editor of a book on Influenza research saw some of these and commissioned me to produce one for the book cover.

This is one of the false colour versions I produced from a monochrome original.

And this is a colour shot of the Influenza virus model produced by putting coloured gels on the studio lights.
