[UV] UV Spring Flowers

Some shots of some early 2012 spring flowers, shot using a special, high UV transmitting lens and a UV sensitive camera. Filter used for the UV shot was the 2" Baader-U filter.

These UV image here also uses my standardized false UV color normal + high intensity palette:


Winter Aconite:

I found it quite interesting how detailed the flower structures are rendered using that lens that reaches down to about 300nm, quite rare actually. That same lens was also used for the shots here where I wanted to show How to avoid IR Leakage

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

More info on this very interesting field may be found on my site
