Interesting, Colin.

At 1000nm, water absorbs energy about 1000 times more than visible light:

Wouldn't it depend on the ppm concentration Ted?

I'm sure it would Scott.

Er, ppm of what ... ?

Whatever is making it dark Ted. I'm assuming the photo was shot using some black food coloring in water, but it could be laser printer toner, which is generally finely ground carbon powder, which coats tiny polymer pellets (plastic beeds), if I'm not mistaken. When the powder is pressed against the paper by a hot roller, the pellets melt, adhering the black carbon powder (probably just left over coal ash, which is ground into an almost nano-particle sized fine grain) to the paper.
