Long time ago I started similar thread on NG, but I do not participate on Fotozones any more, so I decided to re-create it here. I want to display my fluorescence photography in an informal way, without any technical details that may distract from simple appreciation of images that I will show. That is, if they are even worth of any appreciaition. I am going to post them in chronological order, in the same way they are currently arranged on my web-site. I will post three pictures per post and will be updating it with new pictures when I have any. I am posting them all at 800 pixel width, even though the "original" ones in my gallery are a bit larger. So, if they do not look sharp enough - it is due to downsampling by my host server (Zenfolio).

Thanks for looking.

Although I have training in botany and plant identification, I am not doing this type of photography for scientific purposes. I have enough of scientific photography as my job. It just happened that most of the subjects in this series will be plants. But not all!

Alex, these are exquisitely composed.
I have always loved your Lamium fotos. They appear otherworldly.

Thanks so much for posting this beautiful series.

These are superb. The Geum urbanum scores on any level also visually ;)

Your Centaurea might be C. montanum. C. cyanea is also a possibility. Do you have pictures of the specimen showing foliage?

Thank you, Bjørn.
Centaurea was originally identified as cf. montanum. It is definitely not C. cyanea, but why I questioned "montanum" I can not remember right now.
