Valley of Fires
Along Route 380 in New Mexico, just 9 miles northwest of the US 54 crossroads in the dustswept town of Carrizozo, is a place known as the Valley of Fires. 2000 years ago, several cauldrons of fire opened up across 45 miles and poured out lava 150 feet thick in some parts. When it cooled, the area was black with igneous rock. However, now it is lush with plant-life.
These are photos of the Valley of Fires shot with 3.34mp Nikon Coolpix 995 digital camera modified to capture near-Infrared light, that is, IR light reflected by plants, clouds and objects, and generated by IR sources like the Sun.
