Indoor and outdoor plants: infrared photography at the tropical houses, Botanical garden, Zurich

In February 2015 I will have the pleasure to lead a Science Trail (also) about infrared photography at the Botanical garden of Zürich. I took a first investigation on infrared light in the tropical houses of the botanical garden…

Click each picture to enjoy the patterns of indoor plants, greenhouse structures and outdoor twigs.

    Love the pictures. They have an angelic look to them! The contrast within the shadows really accentuate the clarity of each shot. Very nice!

    Cheers

      Thank you Jim, nice to read you again! There was no wind In the greenhouse where I shot these pictures. Therefore I could work with long exposures and low ISO: the result is indeed very sharp for infrared photography.
