17. Infrared Aerial Photo

Infrared photography uses film that is sensitive to wavelengths undetectable to the human eye. With infrared photography, it becomes easier to distinguish between vegetation types and even the difference between land and water become more apparent. This is an infrared aerial shot of the Sacramento Deep Water Ship Channel and Levees. There is a clear separation of water and land and one can tell that there are multiple types of land vegetation or terrain.
