Cloudy Day

Yesterday there were plenty of clouds racing across the sky so I set up the Fujifilm IS-1 with the 720nm IR filter and left it taking one photo every 6 seconds until the batteries ran out. Total taken - 910 shots batch converted to greyscale with Irfanview and dropped en masse in trakAxPC, titles and soundtrack added:


Clouds are very clever things
They aren't held up with hooks or strings
They have no wings to help them fly
They simply hang there in the sky

The setup:
Camera on a sturdy tripod.
Home brew intervalometer powered by 12V battery on the table:



  1. This is very impressive. I'm amazed how fast the leaves change temperature.
    I could never get the intervalometer to work. I ended up buying a S/H one.

    1. Adrian: I was reading somewhere that the light coloured vegetation is caused by reflected IR light which would explain why it changes so fast.
      I have a cheap commercial intervalometer for the Canon but couldn't find one for the Fuji so adapted a cable release for it to go with my home brew one.

  3. A very stable set up you have there, John. Not a wobble even with the breezes. Thanks for letting me know that the photos weren't showing up in my post. I got them reloaded and hope they stay put this time!


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
