Today shots of the former Freudenberg Villa (visible in the background castle Wachenburg), today owned and used as a meeting location by German company Freudenberg, located in the beautiful public Hermannshof Park jointly owned and operated by teh City of Weinheim and the comapany Freudenberg where I like to take flower pictures as there are about 2500 flower species to be found. Shots were done in reflected ultraviolet photography using my "work horse" UV filter, the Baader-U filter as well as in simulated bee vision using my XBV6 filter. Lens was a 55mm Dialyte lens. Light source was sunlight. All shots were done at about f8.

This man made building shows different UV reflections, mainly around 380nm, and all this gets nicely visible.
Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
