I have been experimenting with my Infrared Filter over the past few months and have finally produced some good results with it :P I was photographing in country Victoria with my IR-Filter and took this photograph of a Eucalyptus tree half alive and the other half dead, not an uncommon sight now due to the February Bushfires.

I thought black and white suited well, what do you think – original just below?

Just saw the Blue Moon rise over the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria.

“A blue moon is a thirteenth full moon in a year. Most years have twelve full moons which occur approximately monthly, but in addition to those twelve full lunar cycles, each solar calendar year contains an excess of roughly eleven days compared to the lunar year of 12 lunations.” [Read the full Wikipedia article]
