Did you know that, organic materials such as flowers and plants glow and emit light with the help of a little UV simulation?

This happens all the time, especially when they’re hit by sunlight – though unfortunately, due to the fact that the sunlight overpowers the little colourful lights coming from flowers, we hardly ever get to see them.

Until now.

Photographer Craig P. Burrows has been taking pictures of this gorgeous phenomenon since 2014, after discovering fellow photographer Oleksandr Holovachov’s extraordinary work with ultraviolet-induced visible flourescence (UVIVF) photography.

“Each time I do a set of UVIVF photos, it started with going out under the cover of darkness to snatch unsuspecting flowers growing around the neighbourhood. I rarely know what to expect from a flower before I get it back to shoot. Some that I think will dazzle end up flopping and others, I am surprised by their colours and light. Every one is a surprise,” Craig told BoredPanda.

To make the most of the shoot, Craig ensured that he was shooting in the darkest of environments and used a 365nm light source so that his camera doesn’t pick up on UV light.

In fact, not just flowers have this glow, but their leaves and stems have it too!

Oleksandr Holovachov, who initially conducted ultraviolet-induced visible flourescene (UVIVF) photography even showcased a before and after comparison with both a live and a dead flower so that audiences can see just how much light these flowers can emit.

It’s amazing to see how mother nature can surprise us with her beauty, considering flowers are already gorgeous as they are – but now we know they can also glow!

Though, the only sad thing is that we’ll probably only get to see this gorgeous phenomenon in photos due to excessive light pollution.

Hopefully, one day, every country dedicates a zero lighting park for the general public to enjoy this occurrence.
