IR photography in Iceland has a few drawbacks: serious lack of trees (particularly with light-green leaves), scarcity of strong direct light (which is otherwise great light for normal photography), and shortage of no-cloud-at-all days. But "when there is a will, there is a way", as the proverb says.

InfraRed photography makes you a frustated beginner. You don't see the image until you actually have taken it. Our vision is no good for infrared composition. Our trained photographic eye turns out to be our enemy. Exposure rules don't work. Post-production is madness. Night photography is a no-go. And all colors are different tonalities of red (to our eyes).

You know what...? IR photography is just like a foreign language, with weird complicated grammar. It neither has the same morphology nor the same syntax as normal photography. And it really makes one a speechless babe again.

Exif: ISO 100 ; f/5.6 ; 1/60 ; @18mm
CPL. IR converted camera, 840nm
