Friday Image No.131

Posted on


Madeira cliffs. Olympus EM5 converted to Infrared.

For this Friday’s Image, I thought I would share another of the images from my recent trip to Madeira. Whilst the weather at the time might not have been perfect, the landscape is amazing. Look at the image above. This was the view from one of the coastal paths we were walking at a height of around 400m.

The weather for this shot was a combination of humid haze and rain. My standard Olympus EM5 couldn’t see the distant hills so I switched to my infrared converted EM5. This seemed to fair much better and could cut through the haze to some degree. I’m pleased that it did as the landscape was quite breath taking.

I hope you like the shot and have a great weekend.

    I would like to learn more about the infrared conversion. Sounds like a great idea for an older camera body.

      It is a great idea although I would ensure there is enough life left in the body you use. It’s quite costly to have the conversion done. I will put together a short blog post to say more.
