We take our ability to see for granted, on a daily basis, and yet colors play such crucial roles in our every decision-making process. But we’re not here to talk about that. Today we’re here to show you the world in a different light – literally.
In the following 30 photographs you will be seeing everyday scenes, scenery and objects under a very different condition: in infrared. You see, normally we can only see in visible light, an area on the electromagnetic spectrum that is between "near ultraviolet" and "near infrared".
Without going too technical into it, we need special equipment to see beyond this visible light section and as the following images will show you, the world is just as beautiful in infrared.

The world is a beautiful place that is filled with colors and incredible things, but what we are only able to naturally see and comprehend is but a small fraction. Now that you’ve seen the world in a different light, did it change your perception in any way? Tell us.
