Canon 1DMIII with 21mm Olympus OM lens and R72 filter, ISO 400, 16secs - for the observant, I had taken this IR scene a couple of years ago with my Olympus C8080 during Winter, see below. This time its Summer and an impending cold front on its way to offer relief to 37degC temperatures. The scene and tree had just fallen into shade cast from the setting sun going behind the in-coming cloud.

The above photo was taken a few of minutes prior to the first photo and was a 30sec exposure at ISO 100 with scene lit by the setting sun. It has not been tinted as for the first one and offers a different ambience.

Here are some of my earlier infra-red photos with the Oly C8080WZ:

technical note: these were taken with Hoya R72 filter with exposures 2-15sec and post-processed in Photoshop.
