The Abbey

The Abbey

Photo Information
I've done a series of images today at one of my favourite locations, Roche Abbey in South Yorkshire. This place has so much atmosphere and lends itself to something a bit different, so for this series I've used a Hoya R72 IR filter on my Pentax-M 28mm F3.5 and taken exposures of about 2 minutes. I think the results suit the subject, but that's for others to decide.

K-3, Pentax-M 28mm F3.5, Hoya R72 IR Filter, Redsnapper Tripod, Remote Release

BTW, please ignore the lens focal length reported in the EXIF data, it is incorrect.

Great atmospheric shot. The image has a special kind of clarity, possibly due to the IR filter. I like it!

That's a great introductory shot for a photo essay that invites a more detailed examination of the abbey by you.
I can see what draws you to this place.
Regards, Ian.

Personally, I don't like IR effects but this mild application of it seems to work so well! I look forward to seeing more of the series!

Thanks to you all for the comments, I need to try more of this type of photography, to learn what I can squeeze out of the technique with a cheap filter (got it second hand for £12) and a camera that is not designed for IR images.

Cheers
