San Juan Capistrano, CA – Mission San Juan Capistrano (infrared)

From one of the most beautiful places in the US…Southern California, this photo is of the Mission San Juan Capistrano in Infrared.   A normal CA day is perfect for IR…great sun and clear skies are wonderful!  A clear sky blue sky turns totally black in a black and white in IR ….a perfect contrast to the building and foliage!    I had mentioned that this spot is a portrait photographers paradise…check out the stats from the web site…
