Gazania: Quartz Singlet Lens for Soft Focus Reflected UV Ultraviolet Photography II

Today a set of shots with a different Gazania rigens flower that I have shot previously with a quartz-fluorite lens now using a custom made up UV lens from a simple quartz singlet that I used before, stopped down mildly to various degrees, so as to control a wanted soft focus effect. Shots were done using the Baader-U filter and sunlight as light source on my balcony with some glass mirror effect.

So, I'm sure this is not to everyones taste, but on my way to explore other possibilities then just "scientific" shots, it is a welcome new style.

Part I is HERE and part III is HERE

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