brushed sky

Zeiss 85mm f1.4 manual focus lens

Most of you know I’m a huge fan of morning skies, and that I have an ongoing project to capture them at unusual opportune times. I found this scene at around 430am and was stunned by how the sky reminded me of the aurora borealis… the only problem with that was that this was in New York City! These undulating wavy strokes of light somehow meandering through the still dark morning sky made an incredible impression to my eye, even this at this ungodly hour. I chose to compose the image with a minimalized horizon and just a peak of city skyline showing for context, and it turned out quite nice. Even though I used a relatively long focal length at 85mm, the image still has an expansive quality about it that I love. This would be perfect as a medium sized 16×20 print with a simple gallery frame.
