New Toys

I bought myself some new toys and whilst I am waiting for one of them to turn up, one of the others arrived this morning. I am now the proud owner of a Hoya R72 Infrared filter lens. I wasn't sure whether I would be able to get anything even remotely decent out of it as the discussions I'd seen on the web either said that I would get nothing useable at all to my camera being able to get reasonable pictures in the infrared. It also seems that there is a big difference in quality compared to what lens you are using with some lenses being poorer than others. Since I only have my kit lens at the moment I was crossing my fingers that it would be OK.

I've been playing for a few hours now taking pictures outside my window, playing with various settings on the camera to see what I get. I'd go out but it keep intermittently raining and although I have a new camera bag which would hopefully keep my camera reasonably safe in the rain I'm not sure if I want to get wet.

I leave you with one of my attempts.
