It was cold. Very few visitors in the park, now that the holidays have ended. The more I shoot there I believe that “less is more” is a better philosophy for compositions.
It lasts but a moment, and this morning, out the back door, it struck one Joshua Tree, one leafless-winterized tree.
The winter light has been clear and bluer this January. Or seems that way.
Visited the park yesterday with friends. It was cool, bright light, and lots and lots of visitors from around the world. All images, of course, taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro1. Used Photoshop to post process, and Nik software plugins to modify. To taste. Happy New Year.

A good way to start the New Year is to reflect on the great times in 2013, which included a trip to Hawaii, a long stay in Hawaii Kai, and a visit to Punahou school, one of the oldest in the nation and located in Honolulu. And famous for its lily pond, which included this beauty riding high above the muddy water and surrounding leaves.
Beautiful lily in a beautiful place.
Remember, these are not true in-camera-created Infrared shots. These are all normal RGB shots translated by software.

I don’t have a true digital camera that has been converted to shoot Infrared. These were prepared using Nik software to convert. Stylized results.
