Infrared images with the Leica M8

During the last weekend I had the chance of shooting infrared images with a a wonderful sky, full of clouds. Infrared really shines when there are scattered clouds since it’s high contrast really fits this kind of scenery.
As usual the Leica M8 with the B+W 092 filter was my gear. Both the Voigtlander Skopar 21mm and Leica Elmarit 28mm were used. I have written about the Elmarit at previous posts, but I will state once more that the quality of this lens is simply stunning. Razor sharp with superb color and image quality, it has become my favorite Leica lens. On a film Leica it’s a wonderful landscape lens while on the M8 (37mm equivalent) it’s a fantastic all around lens.
About filters, I have almost abandoned the B+W 093 filter, since the 092 gives the opportunity to produce false color images. The 093 records no color at all so it’s for strictly black and white infrared pictures.
