canon 1dx. Zeiss 135mm apo sonnar

Absolute quiet. Absolute stillness. This is a rarity in the city that never sleeps.

This was taken in the middle of the night from a high vantage point looking east out over the East River towards Queens with a long 25 second exposure. I used a Zeiss 135mm manual focus lens mounted on a Canon 1DX and a tripod with a remote trigger. My focus point was on the solitary street lamp in the center of the image which produced a beautiful sun star effect. Sometimes this image looks like there’s a secret meeting going on down there within that little group of trees, and other times it just looks calm, still, quiet, and cold.

I love the clarity and detail that this lens captures invariably… this may end up being one that I frame for my personal collection.
