Would you happen to know if the D90 is capable of taking photos in IR? I don't remember reading anything about it.
Great photo by the way!

I believe that is a good one for IR. If you want to do IR with an external filter, you can see if it can see IR by pointing a remote at it, the light should be visible when you press remote buttons.
And for the modified variety almost every camera can take IR.

there are two ways to go about it. The usual and cheaper way is to buy an infrared filter that will fit on your lens. A good filter is the Hoya R72, but there are several others, must make sure the filter is for 720nm, that will allow color like above as well as black and white. Any higher numbers will not do color. You then screw the filter on, set a long exposure, and see what you get.
The other option you have is to permanently convert a camera to IR, which removes a filter inside that blocks IR light, and puts one in that blocks visible light. This allows the camera to take IR pictures with quick shutter times like the one above, but this option costs more and you need to devote a camera to.
The filter is the cheaper way to try out IR. Another option is buying a cheap point and shoot IR camera that will also get rid of the need for long exposure times. There are several on ebay I could recommend for that option as well.

Sure, you could buy the hoya filter for around 50 or so in many stores, and then just deal with long exposure times.
If the seperate camera idea appeals to you, I sell Sony W50s on ebay for around 175 that take handheld IR shots, and its the best picture quality for the money.
That one has pictures like [link]
