Cold Loch


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 6 secs, f/8, ISO 200


Previous · Current · Next


You may recognise this scene from my post at the beginning of last week, except this is how it looks during the day. This was actually the first shot I took when I was away for New Year. The loch was situated at the bottom of our cottage so it was naturally the first place to check out.

It was quite cloudy on this particular day, and I was lucky that the clouds parted (slightly) to let me capture this one with my IR filter. I'm actually quite glad that it wasn't too sunny, as I often find that the results are too harsh when shooting in IR. Instead the lighting conditions allowed me to capture a wide tonal range.

It was absolutely freezing when I took this (as you can see from the ice on the Loch!) and so I kept a blue tint to the image to reflect this.

Hi, John. Good luck with the voting. I've been an admirer of your work for a while. I haven't posted a comment until today. A fellow Nikon D70 user, you give me inspiration to get better.

Good decision to keep the blue. I like the mood it sets for the pictures. By the way, any chance you might be interested in being a guestblogger on my photoblog as well? (apart from being on Jem's equally wonderful photoblog) :) Do let me know!

Thanks for all the great responses again everyone... they're all very much appreciated. I think this one has really grown on me, but that could just be down to all of your kind words :)

engloy: Yeah, I'd definitely be interested in that. Give me a couple of days (life's kinda hectic at the moment) and I'll sort it out. Thanks for the invitation!

jem: I pretty much follow this tutorial for my colour IR shots. Definitely worth a try.
