Exceptional morning for AP!

Our weather here was extraordinarily nice this morning, with lots of sun and little wind. I've been photographing a hilltop farm being developed into a community park by our church, so this was a perfect opportunity to get some more archival material. Two flights, two cameras, both Nikon L20s. One has been converted to take near infrared photos. It was also the first flights with the 1/4" sorbothane sheet cushioning the cameras, and the blur I used to see from time to time was gone. I'm quite happy with the results. Enjoy.

Nice NIR stuff Tony. Have you tried fitting a high pass filter yet?

Thanks Ad. The camera is actually a point-and-shoot that's had the IR blocking filter removed and a near-IR band pass filter inserted. I love the effect.

So, will you knit them all together for a panorama? Those are great pictures! Say, you're getting pretty good at this stuff! Well done!

Thanks quailbird. I have stitched some of the nadir photos together, but no panos. Here's one I did last week.
