[UV] Clivia miniata flower through a quartz soft focus lens

Here again a shot of a Clivia miniata flower as shown in a previous entry here. But this time it is not about technical aspects, but how special such a soft focus shot in reflected ultraviolet light looks like.

Here a true soft focus lens was used, which gets easily visible for the trained eye. Unfortunately an art style which has gotten somewhat lost. But a few still hold on to that slow form of photography to bring out the "light from within"...

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
