A friend of mine is a builder and just completed a house in Springdale, Utah. Those of you that have been to Zion NP will recognize that town as being right outside of the park gate. I decided to highlight this house by photographing it with Infrared. All image taken with my modified D100 and 18/70mm lens in the late evening. I am interested in what you think about using IR in this way. Note: The house is sold so these images are for no other purpose than the enjoyment of those looking at them.

View to the rear of the house. This mountain is red but the sun was still hitting it and it came out nearly white:

This house is built on 6 acres and is high enough that it looks down on the town of Springdale.

Staircase (3 stories)

Wow Gordon! Very dramatic (the IR atmosphere) ...and a wonderful house, too!
Thanks Panos, they only gave out 14 building permits this year in the town of Springdale and the review committe was pretty particular.

Both the house and your shots are impressive. I'm envious of the views the owners will enjoy.
I have always wanted a house with spectacular view like this but alas, it will have to be in my dreams. Thanks for your comments Dave.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a house!!!! And I like the IR look, it's an interesting perspective. :smile:
Thank you Gretchen, it is a beautiful home with many amenities inside. Then of course the guest house beside it is not all that shabby either.

Wonderful, unusual images, Gordon. Love the IR effect on the architecture. Interesting how they've incorporated raw wood into the construction. That is the perfect location for this house. When the morning sun hits that rock, it'll blaze red for hours! Springdale, Utah, is a very pretty little town.

These look great Gordon! I especially like that white mountain! IR responds so interestingly to different types of light, but it seems to really thrive on low sunlight!

A Gorgeous house Gordon. And the surrounding scenery is breath taking., Carolyn would kill for that kitchen.

Thanks, Rich
Thanks Rich. The kitchen was very nice and of course you could cook something up and then sit at the table looking out on the beautiful view.

Thank you Sandi, I know you were just here a couple of months ago so you can appreciate the view here in Springdale.

Very nice shots!
I remember Springdale. That's where I stayed in my two trips to Zion, at the Majestic View Inn. Lovely place.
Hey Alex, glad you liked it here in my backyard so to speak.

Very nice captures of a beautiful home. Ah to be wealthy.
Hi Brian, like I said before it will only be in my dreams that I have such a view.

Thank you Chris, I do know that you like IR and appreciate what it does in the various forms of light. I appreciate your comments.

I'll admit that I have never been too interested in IR photography, but this series has really piqued my interest. The quality of each image is great and the coloration is fascinating. And the home, wow is an understatement.

Gorgeous, Gordon! I love both the house and its environs. The IR really makes for an intriguing perspective on it!! Very cool...
I really debated taking IR pictures here but I am not displeased at all that I did. It will be interesting to contrast them to some of the normal shots I took. Thanks for your nice comments.

I hear you Frank, I too never had a great interest in IR but since then I have seen some really great IR pictures, not that these qualify. This was more of a learning experience. I liked the first image the best.

I get to take a lot of house pictures in my job, but none as unusual as these. Guess I'll have to try an IR home shoot, too. Thanks.
