Stratocumulus sunlight interplay

Stratocumulus sunlight interplay

George Preoteasa, member 41,445, has recently started to experiment with IR photography and sent us this video.

He told us, “Last March, I was in the Adirondacks for a weekend and one morning my wife pointed out some interesting effects as some sun was allowed through holes in stratocumulus clouds. I looked at it through the IR modified camera and, interestingly, the effect was greatly emphasized. The areas hit by light are trees with leaves or needles containing chlorophyll, which reflects (otherwise invisible) IR strongly and thus appear brighter and different in color compared to what’s in the shade. I started a timelapse and went for breakfast. When I came back, I had the material for this video”.
