Saguaro National Park: Infrared Adventures

 On a recent visit to Saguaro National Park, Arizona, I spent a couple of days shooting my Nikon-1.  I had the Nikon-1 converter to full spectrum a few years ago and I use filters to limit the range of spectrum photographed.  Every other day or so for the rest of January I will be posting this location.


This image below is the Saguaro that I am currently using as the Banner Photo for my Fine Arts Blog.


And a alternate view of the same cactus which I decided just wasn't appropriate for a banner.


Tell me what you think.........

Solargraphy and the SolarCan

 There are many ways to make a Solargram.  One of the best methods is the SolarCan.  So what is a Solargram?  A definition from SolarCan:

"Born from a love of photography, art & astronomy Solarcan is a unique camera designed to produce extreme time exposures that capture the Sun’s path across the sky."

So Basically it is a Pinhole designed to withstand weather and can be left outside for months/years.  Two of my Solargams from this year (the rest are still cooking):


Above,   an image from my backyard that I've done before.  Below, a view looking SW from my mother-in-laws back yard,


See the setup/placement in the SolarCan Archives.
