Grand Canyon In Infrared #2
Photograph - Fine Art
A 21st Century faux (false) color infrared (IR) photograph of Yaki Point in the Grand Canyon taken from the South Rim near Mather Point. The canyon and adjacent rim are contained within Grand Canyon National Park, the Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, the Hualapai Indian Reservation, the Havasupai Indian Reservation and the Navajo Nation. Nearly two billion years of Earth's geological history have been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their channels through layer after layer of rock while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted.
A beautiful day in October. Photograph was taken with an infrared converted Nikon D3300. This makes excellent home or office decor.
The function of Infrared Photography (like Black and White Photography) is not to render the world as we see it, but rather to use light and dark to enhance texture and composition. The invisible infrared light when shifted back into the visible spectrum has a profound influence on the texture of the sky and clouds that is not seen in visible light photography.
