IR at Mission Santa Barbara

Mission_Santa_Barbara_UR

Digital IR @ Mission Santa Barbara.  I saw these four blooming Century Plants and though they would make a nice IR Study.  Now that they have bloomed, they will die.  But look at the image on the left (below), they already have some baby plants started.  I’d estimate about 10 years old from the size.  So it will be a while before they bloom.  We won’t be here to see it.

Below:  The same perspective in natural color.

My 4th of July

With all the turmoil on the Border.  I’m not feeling much like waving a big flag, my usual post for American Holidays on my Photo Diary.  So I’m going Dark over there and posting a reminder about Internment Here:

Reflected UV Experiments: Orchids

You can fine a lot online regarding Reflected UV and flowers.  So on a visit to a Friend (who conveniently owns an orchid nursery)  I took the time do do a few Experiments:

Cattleya2B

I’m still working on achieving those ‘spectacular examples….But I’m also getting the impression that most flowers DON’T display the spectacular UV Affects.

And the ‘natural’ light images for comparison.  See all the results HERE.
