Information Superhighway

Another Infrared shot, this time with a certain challenge in mind.

Donna's my Get Pushed Thirteen challenge partner, and she challenged me "to use light (and/or shadow) in an unexpected or atypical fashion, or to utilize natural framing in your composition."

I tried to do a little of both in this shot by using only Infrared light and framing the jet in the sky with the power lines.

To get a digital IR image, I modified an Olympus C-730 by removing the IR-blocking layer from it's internal filter, and adding an external IR720 filter for the shot; this way, no "natural" light would enter the camera, only Infrared light. Since plants absorb IR, they appear white (like the pine tree in this shot).
