There are very few things in this world which will provoke a love it or truly dislike it response that the durian fruit normally does.

I have finally had the time to post process the infrared photos I took at Millet’s Farm. These were taken with my Olympus E-M5, Olympus 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens with 680nm infrared filter.
