IR vs. Color Comparison

I updated yesterday’s IR Experiment post to add an image that compared color and IR in the misty, foggy, rainy conditions of my experiment. Here are those two images again for those who have already read yesterday’s post and won’t be reading it again. Note the link to another earlier post that describes IR’s ability to eliminate haze in an image.


As copied from today’s update –

A landscape taken through the mist and clouds. Click to enlarge & see details such as the greenish blue (white here) lichen on the tree and boulder.

For comparison, here is the same scene made a minute later in color. You can see that there’s more contrast/detail in the IR image. This is due to IR’s ability to reduce haze.
