Something, Um… Different! October 21, 2010

Went for a short ride this evening, hoping for a glimpse of the rising nearly-full moon through the swirling clouds of a departing storm.

Well, that didn’t happen; instead the clouds closed in and a cold drizzle began to fall.

I drove on, though, thinking I might catch something different in the gray light.

How’s THIS for “different:”

Yeah, heheh, a black and white photo of a rainbow arching over a blazing sugar maple.  Not quite the traditional rendition of such a scene, but I was curious to see how it would look, and rather like the effect.

And just in case you’re not as easily amused as I am, here’s how it actually looked when I took the shot:

It was a really intense rainbow, and not a half bad consolation prize for the moon-shot I missed n the rain.

Hope your evening went as well.  😉

Back when you used film, did you ever shoot infrared? The first shot there has a bit of that look to it.

A friend of mine back in NC was very into that for a while and took some awesome photos.

Cuz, no, I never shot IR film, but I’ve seen some interesting results by those who did.

Here I was looking for something like an IR effect, but found Photoshop’s “IR Filter” didn’t render the rainbow the way I wanted to see it, so I converted the color capture to b&W and played with selective color saturations. This rendition favored reds and greens, a strange concept for a b&w photo!

I was thinking it was aliens showing off.
