    It's true that some of these deep gaps do not get good coverage of the sun most of the year, and/or only briefly in the day. I will put this negative in my pile and see what I can do .

    Thanks! I photograph for myself, first and foremost, but it's always nice to hear that others enjoy my photos, too!

    Here's a bonus photo from the same outing:

    Hi Jeffrey,

    This is so impressive!

    Who modified the camera?

    Where does this lens come from? Is this the Nikon APS-C 17-35 2.8 and what’s the adapter?

    Thanks for the kind words!

    I did, as I explained in this post earlier in this thread: https://www.largeformatphotography.i...=1#post1484865

    It's a Contax N 17-35/f2.8 zoom. I modified a Fotodiox Fuji to Contax N dumb adapter by removing the Fuji bits from the rear of it and adding back a spacer, as well as a modified Samsung NX-mount 58 mm reverse ring (as seen in this photo along with the Contax N 24-85/f3.5-4.5 zoom lens that I have found also works very well for IR photography when mounted on my modified Samsung NX500 body):



    Unfortunately, the Contax N series lenses all have electronically controlled apertures and because this is a dumb adapter, they must be stopped-down and preset before they're mounted onto it and in turn the camera body. This is a major issue for my nighttime photography (which is why I am pursuing a different solution for the FrankenKamera IV I am presently building), but for daylight IR photograpy, I find it's no hardship at all to compose and focus with the lens stopped down as far as f8 or so. (FYI, for all four of the photos I've posted from the CN 17-35/f2.8 lens, the aperture was preset to f7.1.)

    For obvious reasons, I can't recommend any of this to anyone else, especially because the two CN lenses I'm using are fairly large and heavy to be used on a small camera handheld. But I already own them, love how they render (it's a cross between the classic Zeiss look and the modern Zeiss look, hence the best of both, IMO), and even with my very limited resources, I was able to successfully cobble together a functional lens mount adapter, so why not?

    Tulip, March 2018

    I don't know if this is an appropriate interpretation of a Tulip: it feels a bit more like Stonehenge.

    That tulip is beautiful, Ken! And I always love photographs of interesting doors.

    Speaking of doors, I recently returned from the UK, where I visited Leeds Castle. I shot these with my handheld Minolta Autocord TLR, using T-Max 100, stand developed in Rodinal.
