I bought a Hoya Pro ND1000 filter a year or two back, but haven't used it very much. (If you're not familiar with this filter, it is a x1000 (+10 stop) neutral density filter to enable you to use very long eposure times.) It is often used to turn flowing and tumbling water into a smooth creamy texture. There isn't much water like that in these parts, so yesterday it was quite windy and I thought I'd have a go at moving vegetation - and do it in IR to make the vegetation more dramatic.

All exposures at 30 seconds, using a Sony A6000 converted to full spectrum.

Lens = Lithagon 28mm f/3.5. IR Filter = MidOpt BN850

Very interesting Bernard
I can't say I am a fan of trees shaking wildly, but you have achieved what you wanted & the contrast & compositions are fantastic.

I can't say that I am either, but having invested quite a lot of money for the Pro ND 1000 I need to find things to use it for!
