Black & White #12

Ashland Estate of Henry Clay in Infrared
Lexington, Kentucky


Plants like grass and trees reflect the most infrared radiation, making them appear bright white, almost like snow. For the image to be effective, there must be something in the photo that does not reflect many infrared wavelengths. In this picture, the driveway and the building provide the contrast to the vegetation.
