I’m a sucker for light but water sucks me more. Please excuse the ugly feet.

On IR Photography
As the output of an infrared image taken with a ‘non-dedicated’ camera and used with a filter that passes only the said light looks pink to red (depending on the color temperature you shoot on), processing is necessary. (Or unless one enjoys red, bloody images). But pp-ing IR images can be engaging and even addicting. Addicting in the sense that you are so engrossed in experimenting to get different outputs.
I usually come up with at least three editions. In the end, you are to settle with a colored (correcting white balance and then some channel mixing), and, like the image above, a black and white (usually converting the pp’d colored). But in real life, you can have as many as you want, like print and frame your favorites!
There is something about the wood effect.

‘Muharram is the month with which the Muslims begin their lunar Hijrah Calendar’.
'The word “Muharram” means “Forbidden” and is derived from the word harām, meaning “sinful”. It is held to be the most sacred of all the months, excluding Ramadan.’
