Orlando, FL – Epcot (Infrared)

I was in Orlando last week and finished work one afternoon and decided to head to Epcot around 5 PM.  It was a nice bright sunny day!  Tough to shoot HDR’s in the sun…so I decided to exclusively shoot IR until near sunset!  I had never visited Epcot…so it was a learning experience.  It is a small park…I walked and took photos – one lap took me about 1 hour.  That does not include stopping in each country and seeing the sights.  Just taking a walk about.    Epcot has water, trees, and some great architecture…so perfect for IR this afternoon!

I took about 100 IR photos and knew it was a good call!   This shot is of the Spaceship Earth Sphere in the background.  A very eye catching subject!   Could it be the Bio Dome?  Yes, I admit to enjoying that movie with Pauly Shore!  Simple humor cannot be beat!   As I have tons of IR shots from here…I’ll try to add them slowly in the next year…but I will post an HDR of the Spaceship Earth at sunset this week!   Very cool!  More details from Epcot on Saturday!  Have fun!

    Pete that looks so cool, great job buddy!

  2. That’s what Epcot would look like if it snowed in Florida. 🙂 BTW, it’s funny you say Epcot is a small park. When it first opened it was criticized for being too big and open. They have used all kinds of structures to whittle down the open spaces over the last 15 years.

    Looking forward to seeing your sunset photos.
