I’m not one of those fanatic guys who’s got one of his old camera bodies converted to an infrared camera, I’m using an infrared filter.
Which I hadn’t used in aaaages, I must add. It was nice to dig it out and have a go at it again, even if it almost cost me my camera, because a big wave came rolling in while the camera was balancing on a rock (without tripod, where are they when you need them??) during the 76 seconds exposure time and almost took me and the camera back in.

Here’s the out-of-camera shot:

D700, ISO200, 76 sec @ f/11, Nikkor 50mm, Tiffen 87 Infrared filter

That lens flare was annoying, but there wasn’t much I could to about it with the image that I wanted to take, so… But with a bit of post-processing, conversion, dodging and burning in Photoshop it came out quite ok:

Same specs as above, but with some additional work in Photoshop.
