What a beautiful day it was today here on the west coast. We took the opportunity to take a drive over the hill to Glenelg. I had it in mind to try an old favourite shot of mine, but using my IR converted camera. I could have done with a slightly wider angle lens and a lens hood to prevent the sun flares but otherwise it worked really nicely I think. I usually convert all my IR images into black & white, but occasionally I like them in the 'goldie' format. This camera is a 850nm conversion, otherwise known as a 'Goldie' and the colour version, when corrected for white balance, looks like the following image. The other common IR conversion (720nm) tends to produce a more blue & pink result in colour.
The last shot was taken from the other side of the dun, in the shade, under the big tree, and I think it works really well. The 'Goldie' version is a bit dull, with very little yellow for some reason, I am not sure why, but the black & white version, included here, works fine..
