Morning fog at 4S Ranch in Infrared (4 photos)

Yes, I still have more infrared photos to post. :-) These four are from a morning visit to 4S Ranch – I used to walk Toni in that particular area more often when we still lived closer, and it’s especially lovely in fog. Since the question “what does fog look like in infrared?” needed to be answered, I took the opportunity to go there one morning in June when it was particularly foggy.

I’ve been tempted to present these photos as pure black & whites to avoid yet another random false-color rendition. The odd toning is of course the result of shameless manipulation of the primary color channels once more – it does almost look like split toning, but the base are indeed the “normal” infrared color tones.

In the end, I found that they added a bit of extra depth, making it easier for the eye to “read” the scene and identify the individual elements in the frame, compared to a pure “flat” black & white rendition. This probably has to do with the very light, almost “high key” appearance that I chose, which I found suited the mood very well. I hope you agree!
