Zeiss 100mm f2 Makro Planar manual focus lens

Beautiful B&W photograph of the evening sky opening up to illuminate a single spot on the ground in Long Island City. The cross shaped structure gave the scene a very spiritual appearance, especially because this ray of sunshine was so fleeting and disappeared back into the clouds just a few seconds later. The walkway along this park in LIC was severely damaged in Hurricane Sandy, and the new stairs around this cross were just completed a short while ago. Taken with a Zeiss 100mm f2 Makro Planar manual focus lens.

magical

Zeiss 55/1.4 Otus manual focus lens for Canon

Gorgeous cloud display and incredible details in the structure of the 59th Street Bridge shot in B&W with a red filter. The morning light created this unbelievable pattern in the sky, and highlighted the beautiful lines, arches, and angles of the bridge. The scene disappeared to into a formless dark cloud less than two minutes after this photo was taken. This would make a magical medium sized archival print displayed in a simple black frame. Zeiss 55/1.4 manual focus lens.

good morning

Zeiss 21mm f2.8 Distagon lens photos

It’s finally warm enough to brave the early mornings and capture some of the beautiful imagery that most of us never get to see. I love the sunny contrast in the clouds, and shining glimmer of the water, and the perfectly placed shadows of the buildings with the orange glow of the rising sun illuminating the eastern face of one of them. This would display beautifully as a medium sized canvas print. Taken with a Zeiss 21mm f2.8 Distagon manual focus lens.

almost full

Zeiss 135mm f2 Apo Sonnar Manual Focus Lens for Canon

Dramatic color rendition of a near-full moon taken on May 13th, 2014, one day before the actual full moon. I’ve found that both early morning and late evening scenes like this need to be captured in a hurry, not only because they are so fleeting in time, but also because you never know when, or if, you’ll get another chance. It’s so rare to be able to compose a full moon with a simple series of buildings, let alone with the combination of moonlight and the very distant setting sun illuminating the whole scene providing this contrasty and subdued color profile. This would make a fantastic display as a floating canvas print. Taken with a Zeiss 135mm f2 Apo Sonnar manual focus lens.

ahoy

Zeiss 55mm f1.4 Otus manual focus lens for Canon

Beautiful B&W artistic composition of a ships mast. The shadows and highlights of the morning sunlight are particularly striking, and the image comes across as powerful but somehow still pleasantly nautical. Taken in a Mystic CT shipyard with a Zeiss 55/1.4 Otus manual focus lens using a red filter.

Available as 1 of 20 Limited Edition archival prints.

the other side

Zeiss 21mm f2.8 Distagon manual focus lens photos B&W

This is a very early morning view from the Roosevelt Island side of Manhattan… not the East Side, or the West Side… the Other Side that few New Yorkers ever get to see, but should. Even at 5am, the city is wide awake with energy that is captured beautifully in this long 30 second exposure taken from a rooftop overlooking the city. Look off to the right for the streams of traffic lights moving between the buildings, and imagine the flow of the water and the clouds over 30 seconds of time. Taken with a Zeiss 21mm f2.8 Distagon manual focus lens on a tripod with a remote shutter release.
