You have infrared photography to thank for these mystically captivating photos. The image sensor used for these photos is sensitive to infrared light--much different then the light that can be picked up by the naked eye.

The scenes of rich greenery are now a snowy white which is truly mesmerizing. Have a look at the infrared photos for yourself!

Implications - What I love most about this incredible application of technology is that it gives the photos a surreal and dreamlike aesthetic. They almost seem to feature terrain from another planet, and certainly don't seem real. Despite this appearance, each of the photos is very real, which only makes their unfathomable awesomeness all the more incredible to behold!
