An entirely different world…

Sometimes, the things we see every day are almost more than we can handle. We are bombarded by so many things demanding our attention that it is very easy to begin to believe that the only things that matter are the things we see.

The human eye can only see within a certain spectrum. You may have learned that our eyes can see ROYGBIV: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. That’s actually a very small portion of the spectrum. The sun emits radiation that is outside of that spectrum, namely infrared and ultraviolet. Below I’ve taken a picture that shows only a slice of the infrared spectrum hitting trees and water, grass and concrete. It looks different, doesn’t it?

I hope you enjoy it and that it helps you to remember that what we see isn’t all there is – there is much, much more.

  1. I love IR photos. BTW, if you’re going to make an offer like that, you may want to disable some of the anti-copying features on your blog. ;-)

  2. Andy, there is a link in the text that opens up a full image to download.

  3. Ah, I missed that. The link color is very close to the text color…
