I was caught off guard at how white the arch presented in infrared. Generally, items that are green, especially leaves and plants, become white in an infrared capture.The natural color of the arch is more earthtoned, with a yellow/brown/red mixture. I need to do a bit more research. Green and red are color opposites, and I’m wondering if the fact that both can display as white in the infrared spectrum depends on whether they derive their color by reflecting or absorbing light.
Beyond that, I was pleasantly surprised even to find this image last night as I scanned my catalog from the nXnw trip, because I have no memory of taking it. First, I did not remember using my infrared camera at this location. Second, this seems to be from a different perspective than where I remember being situated. Yet here it is.
Have a great weekend and see you back on Monday.
