Lassen in Infrared

Lassen Infrared SM13 B+W-51

Lassen can prove a fertile ground for doing infrared photography, thanks to the unusual landscape combined with mountain foliage. The biggest challenge may be the lack of clouds in the summer. Luckily, I got plenty of clouds to work with after my first day there. On the first day in the Butte Lake, no clouds at all to work with. This led to dark skies, dark water:
