Cherry Blossoms in Infrared

  • A view of cherry blossoms with an infrared camera contrasts the stark white flowers with dark gravestones

As the calendar turns to April, I have started to look past the left over snow and forward to the coming spring. In my mind, nothing says spring like cherry blossoms in full bloom and that thought brought me to this infrared image of the Harris Street Cemetery cherry blossoms from 2014.

I had converted my old Canon camera to shoot infrared when I upgraded to a full frame one. The infrared modification allowed me to capture brilliant foliage that showed as bright white against light pink grass and bluish sky.

For the past few years, this crop of cherry blossoms has not been blossoming very well and I am very hopeful for a strong showing this year.
