Thanks you all, you are very kind. Old tree at the coffee plantation is one of my favorite IR's.

It was taken a saturday morning at 9:56 AM in "Doka State" farm in Alajuela, Costa Rica.


Nikon D2H, Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 lens with "Hoya" RM72 (Wratten #89B) infrared filter.
ISO 200, f/5.6, 5 seconds exposure.

Yes, infrared has something magic, photography is recorded by a light that our eyes can't see, and also allows to take photos at the worse hours of the day, when the sun is so hard that is better to keep the camera in the bag.

Now I will convert an old Nikon D70 to infrared, with the purpose of include people in my IR photography.

Thanks to you all. Next conference is in Spanish:
