No, you aren’t dreaming. And yes, these are photos of REAL flowers! 28-year-old photographer Craig Burrows photographs plants and flowers using a type a photography called UVIVF or “ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence. It’s a relatively unknown process which brings out the glowing fluoresce in plant matter through the use of high-intensity UV lights. Cool huh?

“Typically UV is removed through a camera’s lens, however Burrows photographs with a 365nm LED light which is passed through a filter to transmit only UV and infrared light. The dazzling plant life Burrows’ photographs absorbs this UV light and releases visible light at different wavelengths, which allows him to capture colors far more vivid then those seen in a typical viewing condition.”

You can see more of the Southern California-based photographer’s glowing plant portraits on his Flickr.
