Infrared "Wizard of Oz"?

by
A Norwegian DSLR videographer, who uses the exact same camera model I have, and also modified as I shall be having done this month (happy birthday to me in 3 days!), shot this video in infrared recently, on a pedestrian overpass near a small town, just after some rain- Can't tell if this was morning or evening, but... To me, it's remarkably reminiscent of the beginning sepia scenes of the classic 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz...

Watch it, and tell me what you think! :)

(Yes, 3 days to go to birthday #48, on the 10th... :O )

That's definitely a sepia-tone sky. It looks like mid-winter with all the white foliage, doesn't it?

Yep-- That, and a lack of haze are two of the more obvious things about infrared photography & video. :) Although in visible light, grass & leaves can appear in many shades of (mostly) green, but it's usually not that highly reflective. In contrast, in infrared, chlorophyl-infused foliage is so maddeningly bright, that if the white balance is set right, the foliage can be a remarkably different colour than any visible-light portion in the image. But yes, the "winter" look is a common appearance of infrared. :)
