I captured this image using a Fujifilm X-E1 mirrorless camera that was converted to capture infrared (590nm conversion from Life Pixel Infrared). I liked the combination of textures in the rocks and the deep black sky. I decided to leave the blue tint in the vegetation instead of completely converting the image to monochrome. Had I done that, the vegetation would have disappeared.
This old car is one of many relics near Nelson, Nevada. I captured this image using a digital infrared camera. The bright foliage and orange sky is a result of the 590nm infrared capture. If you have an old DSLR or point and shoot digital camera lying around, you can have it converted to capture infrared light and have a new creative tool.
