    Thanks for looking!

  2. Pretty place for IR photography. You have some nice images here.

  3. Thanks Gordon, glad that you like them. Yes, it is a pretty place.

    It appears you live in Utah? I was there a few years ago. Here is a gallery of my images from the Southwest:


  4. This is a color rendition of the second image above:


    Not sure if I like it, but this is my first attempt with color infrared.

  5. I really like the second shot. I think it would look pretty cool as a HDR image as well.

  6. Thanks Rich! I have never done an HDR, but it is in my future.

    Jon first off cool images! Second, the MOMENT I clicked on this thread I was like "what the heck??? That is Azela Park!!!!" I live in Summerville too!!! LOL
    I am interested in IR photography...do you have to have a special camera that is set up and dedicated to just IR photography? Where would one start for this? Howdy Neighbor!
  8. Thanks, glad you like them! And, Howdy also!

    I do not have a special IR camera. These were taken with my Nikon D70, with a Hoya R72 filter, on the kit lens. With the filter on you can not see through the viewfinder. The shutter times are long (1/4 to several seconds), so you need to use a tripod. What is nice with digital, is that you can see the image on the viewfinder and look at the histogram. What I do, is compose the image without the filter, and then put the filter on and take the picture.

    Did you know there was a local Summerville camera guild? Members get together fairly often for walk-abouts. Take a look here:
