Photon's puzzle. / by Socratus /
1) When photon travel  '' with absolute constant velocity its wavelength is infinite.''


2)  Photon can have short  wavelengths  ''as photons with higher energy'' and
photon also can have long wavelengths.


Does somebody can explain: how photon can change its  infinite wavelength ( !)
  to another wavelengths:  short or long ?

  Is a single photon also a Maxwellian wave?
   Look into Wave-particle duality.
It is a major part of Quantum Mechanics which answers your question.

A quick summary: light is not just a wave, not just a particle.
In some situations it behaves like a wave; in others it behaves like a particle.

Yeah, i can understand this explanation:
Photon is like a cow, sometime it gives milk and  sometime - beef.

Sorry, i used wrong term : ''  infinite wavelength''
i needed to write that photon with speed  c   ''has no wavelength.'' 
So, photon travels with constant speed  c  without wavelength is a pure particle.
This pure particle travels in a straight line.
  Question: '' When does wavelength of photon appear ?''

  Another aspect of photon.
One postulate of SRT says: the speed of quantum of light in a Vacuum
is a constant ( c= 299,792,458 km/ sec)  /  Michelson-Morley experiment  /
In this movement quantum of light  DOESN'T  have TIME
The time is stopped for him / it.
Question: ''When does time of photon appear?''
Another point.
The time for photon with speed  c  doesn't exist.
But this is possible only if his reference frame - vacuum -  also doesn't have time.
It means that the reference frame - VACUUM  is a TIMELESS  continuum.
