Infrared or Full-Spectrum?

A trip out to Portpatrick on Monday of this week and we were assured of some decent chances of sunshine throughout the middle of the day which sadly, as you’ll now know, did not come. (I really do need to stop relying on BBC’s Weather App!) Nonetheless, though I was hoping for some more chances to shoot a few IR frames here, as the clouds loomed over us and, flatly refused to leave (I did ask nicely, honest!) – I consoled myself instead with some long-exposures with my LTFS converted GXR (still my favourite sensor/lens unit after all these years). The winds were around 40-50mph on top of the cliff so, keeping the camera steady on its three spindly legs was tricky, at best. A good number of shots were ruined that way but, I kept going and was reprieved enough to be able to at least come away with a small handful of captures. It’s all I ever hope for, if I’m truly honest. While the strongest of the sun’s light escaped me today – I remain happy that I managed to leave with a few frames I’d not caught before, from this beautiful little coastal town on this western shore of the peninsula.

I do hope you’ll enjoy them.
