Created on a frigid winter day somewhere on Cape Cod, this photograph of a clothesline structure was one of my first infrared images in which the result was exactly how I had previsualized it--with the hooks suspended in space and receding into the distance. I also knew that because the wooden board to which the hooks were attached was in shadow, it would merge in tone with the distant blue ocean, which was itself darkened with a red filter. I lined up the board and ocean to form a single horizon, anticipating that the graduated sky would produce the feeling of a rising or setting sun.
