This big piece of driftwood on the beach really caught my attention, I thought it deserved much more than just a quick snap but as it only early afternoon and the tide was just starting to come in I figured it would either be completely submerged or in a totally different location by the time sunset came around so I thought I would try doing a few infrared shots, Im quite pleased with the results.

    i like this, what filter did you use?/ cheers don
    IR filter??

  • Hi Donny, the filter im using is a cheap Cokin IR filter that iv glued onto a Cokin 77mm adapter ring so I could screw it on to the front of my lens, then I put black insulation tape all round the edges of the filter to make sure there was no visible light leaking through the glued join. Very cheap but seems to be effective.
