What's a 16-minute exposure look like in bright sunlight? Normally, pure white. However, an unmodified camera with an infrared filter in front can produce slightly more entertaining results. :)

Taken at Onaping Falls, this false-colour IR shot was taken at ISO 100, F/16 and 16 minutes. The smoothing effect on water typically doesn't get "smoother" beyond a few seconds, and motion in the clouds will obscure sky details over a minute or so.

So, why 16 minutes? For a fun experiment!
