Tree In Grand Canyon Infrared
Photograph - Fine Art
The Tree in the Grand Canyon is a 21st Century false color infrared (IR) photograph taken on the Arizona South Rim.
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 590 nm Nikon D3300.
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 has a profound influence on the texture of the sky and clouds that is not seen in visible light photography. The other attributes of infrared photographs include very dark skies and penetration of atmospheric haze, caused by reduced Rayleigh scattering and Mie scattering, respectively, compared to visible light. The dark skies, in turn, result in less infrared light in shadows and dark reflections of those skies from water, and clouds will stand out strongly.
WATERMARK WILL NOT APPEAR ON PRINTED PRODUCT.
