Old Volcanic islands of the coast of New Plymouth – Taranaki – New Zealand.
The Daily Post challenge this week (and not something I have participated in for an age) is “A Good Match”
The 2 cars in the shot below are both 1956 Chevy Bel Air’s, one of my faveorite classic American cars, I think the green and yellow paint word are indeed “a good match”

This weeks Daily Post theme is “Edge”
The image below is a landing jetty over a lake. Shot in 720nm Infrared and converted to false colour in CS6
This weeks photo challenge is “Look Up”
Sunlit forest canopy shot from the ground. The bright foliage stands out against what was a clear blue sky, the contrast was altered in Photoshop to accentuate the effect.
Last year I aquired a 720nm Infrared Converted Fuji X-E1 and I performed a test with my then current lineup of Fujinon lenses to see which could be used for Infrared photography, and which couldn’t due to the phenomenon known as hot spotting. These hotspots usually manifest themselves as bright circle in the middles of the image, somewhat like a really bad lens flare. The reasons behind the hotspots can be attributed to the way Infrared light reacts with the coatings inside the lens barrel, or the coatings on the individual lenses themselves within the lens barrel. Part 1 of the test can be seen here.
