Patriarch Grove, Sunrise

Five days of wind making it very difficult to shoot and some rain. And it’s really difficult for me to get up at 5 AM (sleep requirements still demanding from LHC), but I made the effort this morning. June is my least favorite month for sunrise and sunsets— the sun shoots straight up, turning the light not so great very quickly. And there is that 5 AM thing (predawn glow is around 4:15!). Early and late in the year is much better.

The Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM continues to impress me. Can you believe this image is at f/1.2?!

The 50/1.2GM can definitely be put into service as a landscape lens. And it does everything else well too, including handling flare. It is surely one of the finest 50mm lenses ever made. I’ll show this scene as an aperture series soon.

Amazing image quality. Can I check is this image a crop or full image area? Just surprised by the front to back sharpness in the image…assuming this wasn’t a focus stacked image?

DIGLLOYD: see the caption. Single frame @ f/1.2, entire sensor (not a crop). There are some weanesses at f/1.2, which I’ll detail in the full aperture series when I publish it in a few days.
