We’re having beautiful weather here in Leeds – everything seems to be waking up. Not wanting to waste the bright sunshine, I nipped outside this morning after a lazy Sunday pancake breakfast (Nutella & banana – lush!) to get some pictures of the blossom that is making our car park look a little bit less soviet.

In the last couple of years I have been experimenting with a R720 infrared filter on a Nikon D100. This has left me with a lot of very red images to process – the occasional one of which comes out okay after it has been processed. Below are a couple of IR images taken in Barcelona and in Whitby.
I have hundreds of photos from our trip to Barcelona last April, mainly of the beautiful architecture in Park Güell. I’m going to aim to pull my finger out and get some more posted soon, but for now, here are some that feature the gorgeous tile work/mosaics in the park. I wish I were there now…
