    My new favorite place, that I can't believe I didn't know about, is just 20 minutes from my house, in a park that I visit often. Sunset lake is on one side, and about 30 feet away is Sanctuary Marsh, where I found this very friendly Heron.

    The filter is almost opaque. Metering is pointless. I shoot at f/8 because focusing is so tricky with IR. So, a typical exposure at f/8 is usually ISO 200, anywhere from 20 seconds, to 2 minutes, depending on light. It's trial and error in every situation. You want to get as much exposure as you can though, because you'll introduce noise if you have to crank up a shot that is a few stops underexposed at 30 seconds or more.
