What a wonderful image! S-
There are ways of 'faking' an IR image but true infrared photography records a different part of the light spectrum. For example, Some (not all) green in trees reflect more IR back than others (something to do with the chlorophyll properties of leaves or some such) and therefore records as a very light gray to white instead of the normal mid to darker grays we are used to seeing in a normal B&W conversion. Flowers do the same thing. Skies tend to be deeper grays and blacks than in a normal conversion also. Man made stuff tends to look about the same. It takes a little getting used to in order to pre-visualize an image in IR.
Hope this helps as a quickie answer. IR can be pretty involved, depending on how far down the rabbit hole you want to travel.
