When I saw the challenge category I knew I had a perfect image for it, but what I was unsure of was how voters would react to an infrared image since they've never done particularly well for me here. So when I checked it the morning voting started and saw it at 5.25 I was by no means stunned. Where it's gone since? That's more than surprised me.

This is the Pochuck Boardwalk section of the Appalachian Trail in Sussex County, NJ. On a beautiful day cars are parked for a quarter mile in every direction and there are hikers everywhere. We got lucky on this day as we got there early.

Stunning! It took me a while to recognize that it's a IR image, but it works perfectly for this scene. Congrats!

Not sure about the almost surrealistic editing, but somehow it works for this image.
