Bare Branches

Although I named this "Bare Branches," it could easily have been called "A storm of branches" for the way infrared made the whitened bare winter tree limbs suddenly stand out against each other and the very dark sky. This location is a quiet place -- a nearly 300-year old Quaker cemetery in the historic town of Haddonfield, NJ. With regular color of B&W, the tree branches all kind of mush together as a gray blur when you glance at them. Here, infrared captures their minute detail in a way that seemed to me to strongly suggest movement.
