IR Film has such an advantage over digital, I was out yesterday taking IR on my D50 but with an R72 filter needed to do it even in bright sunshine the fastest I could have the shutter is one second restricting me to just doing landscapes. Some very nice shots here!

The IR shots do start to make one think about the different emissions and reflectance in everyday scenes and they really come into their own when viewed to the larger size. Interesting work.

The horse picture is kind of dreamy. I really like the 2nd gate picture. Maybe I'm just attracted to rusty old things. =)

I like this whole series, for different reasons. IR is still just way cool, IMO. The other shots? Simplicity...that's why I like them. They portray a country road well.
