Today a set of shots with a 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.

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 II is HERE and part III is HERE
Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
