Today’s featured photo of the day! Obscure Darkroom Magic

Here is today’s featured photo. I am featuring an extra special event of featuring a reflection of my favorite part of being in the darkroom…making art out of a regular photo! Here is a set of photos of a great summertime sunset with a tree in the foreground. A true show for infrared! Date – June 1981.

A work of art, not only with vignetted red but cyan skies in the colorization selections with selected selenium toners.
