Infrared Foliage

Two versions of the same scene seen here, both shot with the InfraRebel at the Marsh-Billings Rockefeller National Park in Woodstock, Vermont. 'Twas a lovely walk through the autumn woods, and what better way, as I may have mentioned before, to capture the beauty of the New England fall, than to shoot in the pseudo-color black and white dreamland of digital infrared?

Above, left to right, are Kenny, Cheryl, Sherry and Sharon leading the way into the woods on the way to the Pogue. The Pogue is a 14 acre man-made lake with a three-quarter mile path surrounding it. In the Irish language 'pogue' (spelled 'póg') means 'kiss'. What this has to do with man-made lakes in central Vermont I do not know, but I have learned that a handy phrase in Irish is "póg mo thóin".
