Hi Phil, how far into the IR spectrum can your modified camera see? Can you use it for astrophotography to see hydrogen-alpha emissions from distant nebulae and similar sky objects?

Brilliant shots of trees. Lisa, lovely set of images, really like the tree images. The Stratford image is great. Perhaps a little more contrast and boost the colours a little may make it stand out a little more. Super capture.

Robert, great set of images, the shot of the Laburnum? Did you use flash? Love the burnished nature of the tree.

Really strong set of images from everyone.

Ed - you flatter me to even ask the question! I have passed it on to Advanced Camera Services who did the conversion for me. Fingers crossed for a reply this year. Phil

Hi Phil - sorry, I didn't mean to put you 'on the spot' like that. I was just interested in how effective an IR modified camera was for astrophotography use. I have to say though, I really like your IR images of landscapes and the different tonal rendering they show. Thank you for asking ACS for me.

Didn't think I had any 'Looking down' shots - then came across this one, taken from the Pompidou Centre in Paris. Phil

Very nice, Phil. Great vantage point and well captured. I can imagine the Parisians would love to be strolling through their parks and squares like that now.

Here are my shots.
My theme was 'Dead Wood' plus a couple of shots of a beautiful rainbow on the 30 March, just happened to have the camera at hand, how convenient.

Enjoy
Michele

Hi Everyone
Apologise for being quiet on the forum but been busy in the garden over the last couple of weeks, not getting much remote work done tho.
Lovely to see all the photos coming through so here are my quick comments. (I have just written this out once and lost it so here we go again).
Ian : Love the shot of the solitary tree image
Ed : Love the 2nd & 3rd image , what beautiful sky's and very contrast to each other.
Jim : Lovely shots foolish or brave you got the shot, love the 2nd shot beautiful.
Colin : Loving the silouette of the man up the tree and very clever with the 'fallen' branch. Love the 3rd shot looking up.
Trevor : Love the 2nd shot, very Autuminal such beautiful colours
Phil : As always lots to see. Love the leaf shots and some wonderful colours. Love the tree shot in the snow/frost of the willow tree beautiful
Lisa : Magnolia tree lovely photo. Looking down shots, unbrellas very effective.
Robert : Love the 'bark' shots very effective and the last shot with the sunlight beaming through the trees

Short & sweet comments but loving everyones pictures.
I have a few bird ones taken in the garden which I will forward later.

Keep safe
Michele

Hi Michele - Nice to see your images of trees and rainbows. I was absolutely amazed at your second rainbow image as on that very day (30th March) I shot the following image from my upstairs studio window overlooking my back garden and houses. We must have obviously been viewing this from the same vantage point. Love the clarity of your shot and the colours of the trees.

Phil,

Thanks for comments - I thought the same about the bullrushes.
There was actually a unicorn in the picture, but unfortunately they are invisible to ordinary cameras.
I wonder if they could be seen by infrared?

How funny, brilliant shot. If I had had the wide angle lens on I could have got the whole rainbow. It was so clear, wasnt it. Right place,right time.

Hi Michele - Yes it really was. I wonder if anybody else captured that image.

Fun to see the (double) rainbow shots by Michele and Ed. good to see CCS members keep their eyes skinned! Michele I envy you having the woodpecker visit your garden. I think this was the female (no red on back of head).

Found another Looking Down shot - taken on South Bank

That redwood is impressive, but fairy door? Do you mean the thing that looks like an abandoned loo seat?
It's a cedar of Lebanon and yes, I mean the little door at the bottom. It is embossed and the shadows are making it look horseshoe shaped (abandoned loo seat :o ).

Loved the rainbow shots. :P .
