Infrared interlude

The first batch of my infrared photographs is ready. To have a break from those brown and blue landscapes, let's have a look at them in a different light.

I made these on expired Kodak HIE film with a Voigtlander Bessa T + 25mm Skopar combo and a 39mm Hoya R72 filter. This IR film is difficult to use because we can only guess the correct exposure (Kodak says "use 1/125 and f:11 but do a lot of bracketing"), and results are mostly an ugly grainy mess but sometimes it works fine. Using a film camera, especially a rangefinder, is so refreshing after digital - the sound of the flick with my thumb on the film forward lever is priceless.
The shot with the chorten and prayer flags was taken in Kalpa, the rest in Ladakh.
