(ph)ursday - infrared trees

i gotta get me an infrared camera. or at least a converter for my existing camera. look at the magical affect it has! these photos were posted by moolf, who explains that
in infrared photography, the film or image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light. Because everyday objects reflect infrared in proportions that differ sharply from that of visible light, the tonal relationships are wildly unexpected. Such near-infrared techniques used in photography give subjects an exotic, antique look. Green vegetation becomes white, whereas human skin becomes pale and ghostly.
click on the link above to see more. neat or what? i'd say so. and the trees in the first photo look like Truffula trees from the Lorax :)
