These Infrared Photos of Yosemite Looks Like Another Planet

Infrared images can make the landscape look just like a surrealist masterpiece. But when an infrared camera is switched on an already-incredible landscape, the results are stunning.

Ryan Berg shot this sequence of landscapes throughout his recent trip to Yosemite. The infrared result is dreamy, rendering the iconic park as an alien planet.

As dark skies stretch over-head waterfalls crash into boulders and foliage spreads across cliffs.

Not in the fascinating visual results used for artwork, infrared photography can also be used to measure the health of crops, creating the environment of those photos particularly intriguing. The rose colors are camera-generated visualizations of infra-red light along with the many strengths of green.

The stronger, the more healthy the plant, the red color.
