Photos: Coachella Through An Infrared Lens

We'll be the first to admit that most of the pictures that come out of Coachella look more or less the same. You can try different Instagram filters, but it's hard to put a new spin on those iconic shots of the Ferris wheel with mountains in the background but photographer Mark Davis at Getty found a new lens: infrared. The photos don't reveal a whole lot we didn't know—though we do have more respect for those white-hot palm trees taking a beating in the sun—but it sure does look cool.
