France is a country with an abundance of natural beauty. Photographer Paolo Pettigiani has captured France's rolling lavender fields and Versailles' landscaped terraces. Pettigiani now includes contemporary France to his Mont-Saint-Michel collection, which features the Gothic abbey in bright, intense colors in his expanding series of infrared photographs. The fantastic collection captures these lovely settings in watermelon hues, and candy-colored glows. Each location is captured by Pettigiani with a full-spectrum infrared camera, revealing previously hidden wavelengths that enhance the trees, grasses, and stone surfaces that reflect infrared light of varying hues of pink.

More from the France Infraland series may be found on Pettigiani's Behance, website and Instagram, as well as prints of the strange landscapes available at Lumas.
