Palo Alto, CA – Stanford University – Palm Tree (Infrared)

While in Northern CA last week.  We took an early Am visit to Stanford University.  I have a cool HDR coming soon!  But as my buddy Horace Kwan and I were walking through the courtyard, there were these nice palm trees around. We even saw a portrait photographer taking shots of a couple….the grounds are beautiful.  I can recall snapping this and telling Horace…hey even a simple Palm Tree looks cool in IR!   So here it is…a minimalist Palm Tree shot!   Infrared shots with Palm trees are a great combo!  What roads have Palm Trees lining them….now that would be a sweet shot!  Hmmm…Beverly Hills, Palm Springs, anywhere else???    Time to try that shot next in IR!   If I can find it.   Have fun!

    Does one have to shoot in some kind of infrared mode in the camera to get shots like this or can it be done in Photoshop?
