No Snow - No Fair!

It seems at the moment that the Mid-West, and Limerick in particular is the only place in the entire Western Hemisphere that isn't covered in a lovely blanket of snow. I went out this morning and took some infra-red shots to compensate. Anything green goes completely white, particularly when converted to monochrome. I haven't had the easiest relationship with infra-red, but I think when it's done well it can be stunning (for example, Darren Greene). I think the trick is very stark, minimalist subjects and lots of sunlight. Some day I'll manage it.
