zeiss 35mm f1.4 manual focus lens for canon ef mount

It’s officially 2014, and it’s time for a fresh start. This is the first sunrise of the new year and I wanted to see it in a new way. I wanted to see only the energy of the light, not the details of the scene. I didn’t follow any of the normal techniques or standards to take this shot. The aperture was nearly wide open because I wanted the light to blast through the lens with a soft feel… a no-no with the lens facing directly into the sun, especially without a filter. The shutter speed was set at 1/5000 to compensate for the wide open aperture. And the entire image is out of focus on purpose so that it’s the energy you see, and nothing else. Photography has given me the gift of seeing the world in a new way, and in 2014 I want to continue to push the limits of how things in this world can be seen through the eye of a lens.

Perfect for a large floating canvas print. Taken with a 35mm f1.4 Zeiss Distagon lens, f/1.8, 1/5000, EV -2.
