Infrared Tree and Downfall at Mt. St. Helens

An infrared shot of a pine tree on a wildflower covered ridge near Mt. Saint Helens. The tree roots on the bottom right of the photo are blow down from the 1980 eruption. Infrared light is not visible to the naked eye and is just beyond red in the color spectrum. Living foliage reflects most of the direct infrared rays and thus shows up as white. The sky absorbs most of the IR light and shows up much darker.
