After a trip in August to RMNP, then to Colorado Springs in March, I eventually purchased a new camera that I wished I had for those 2 previous trips. It is a Panasonic GX85 converted to Full Spectrum IR by Kolari. I chose a GX85 as that is also my regular travel body so I know its operations well.
Along with the camera I purchased the Kolari IRChrome filter that replicates Kodak Aerochrome IR color slide film. Kodak ended production of this very unique film a long time ago. Basically it is IR but instead of the reflected IR light showing as white (as in standard b+w IR), it shows as red/rust.
I had a specific type of shot in mind that I wanted to capture and on Day 1 of my photo trip specifically to use this new camera I was pleased with making my vision a reality.

As soon as I saw the image, I thought that too much saturation was added to the trees with PP. But after reading your explanation I understand that the red color comes from your special camera/filter. Very nice composition.

I think it is an outstanding photograph. For me, the red tone of the trees detracts from the image. Otherwise, it's an interesting scene and a strong composition.

The Aerochrome look definitely has a limited appeal. Here is a straight b+w version which works well too, but I do love the red version too.
