On the way to Florida, we took a short detour to St Simons Island. We only had time for lunch and a short walk around the central part of the town. I pulled out my infrared camera and shot a few frames.

SONY NEX-C3 1/320 second F/13.0 ISO 200 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

La couleur enlèverait sans doute une grande partie du charme de ce beau phare !
Bonne journée.

I like IR images. Nice shot !! Your NEX is IR converted ?

@Hiro: Yes, I had Life Pixel convert it with a 720nm filter. Thanks for your comments.

Wonderful composition and outstanding IR. Do you recommend any Sony E mount lenses for work with an IR filter?

@Stephen: I am no expert on the different brands of cameras and models. I had a converted point-and-shoot and I wanted a larger sensor. I kept my eyes open for close-out sales (when new models were announced) on aps-c and micro four-thirds cameras, so when I saw this NEX 3 with a kit 18-55 mm lens for about $200 I jumped on it. I had it converted by Life Pixel. So far I am happy, though it does not produce massively better photos.

I like the way the IR distinguished the water tower from the clouds in the sky. A high quality image.

Nice framing and great dramatism conveyed with those clouds under that B/W processing.
