West Side Road (Infrared)

Engelmann Oak and the West Side Road trail, with Cuyamaca Peak in the distance. Near Ramona, California, January 2017.

West Side “Road” is a hiking trail on Cleveland National Forest land that starts at the very end of the San Diego Country Estates area near Ramona. It’s very close to the super-popular Cedar Creek Falls trailhead – and receives very little attention.

Along the PCT to Eagle Rock (color infrared)

False-color infrared photo of California Buckwheat and pastures along the Pacific Crest Trail near Warner Springs, California. May 2016.

These are the color photos that I previously mentioned, from the hike to Eagle Rock on the Pacific Crest Trail. I may have gone a little bit over the top with the processing of these. The creative processing possibilities for color infrared are almost infinite it seems – and this was about exploring them! :)

Cottonwood Variations in Infrared (3×3 photos)

Solitary Cottonwood tree at Lake Henshaw in infrared, near Warner Springs, California. May 2016.

En route to a hike in the Warner Springs area, I of course had to stop at “my tree” to photograph it with Shannon‘s infrared converted camera. By now, I’ve got long exposure blends, night photos, dawn photos, storm photos, fog photos, black & white photos, color photos of that tree – there’s really not much left to add. Except for infrared. :-)
