A nippy day

Here are some of today's images. I shot concurrently with my old IR workhorse, the D200, and was surprised to see that output quality from the D40x was equal or better using the same filtration on both. Exposure times came out at least 1 stop faster as well. The 50/1.8 SE did hot-spot on the D200 but not on the D40x as far as I could see. Hmm. Food for thought.
When lakes freeze over, you can get the weirdest pattern at the surface. Here is an example with D40X and the 200/3.5 ED-IF.
The actual border between Norway and Sweden, 70 years ago swarming with heavily armed German soldiers, now is as laid-back peaceful as one can possibly imagine. Only the fresh trail of a migrating wolf indicates illegal passages going on, but the wolf probably is illiterate like most of his kin anyway.

The third one doesn't look like IR at all....

But are the two dark trees in the foreground and the dark tree trunk part of the hotspot?

The tree or part of it in shade will be rendered very dark compared to the directly sunlit sections.
An IR hotspot appears as a circular, bright spot in the exact centre of the frame.

Very nice set indeed and the lake/ice shot is particulary inspiring.

Been a bumpy ride, though, and the body has survived a lot of beating over the last few years.

That said, my D40 (along with my current J1) has been the most trouble-free Nikon camera I have used. Both D2H and D7000 needed to be serviced by Nikon, but neither D40 or J1 have been in that situation, ironically. None of these cameras have gone through severe weather conditions, though.
