Zeiss ZF.2 25mm f/2 Distagon T*

Aperture Series: Bush in Blowing Snow

This image incorporates a close range subject with a distant background, good for evaluating the overall bokeh of the lens from near to far.

Example — Bush in blowing snow

This image taken in the White Mountains of California on Nov 4, 2011 5:19pm. I offer private photo tours in this area. It was an awesome, lovely day. Well, I like snowstorms, what can I say. And the entire area entirely to myself with no party-pooper NPS rangers telling me to get out, as they do on Yosemite Hwy 120 when it snows. Here, I am free to enjoy and/or get stranded/stuck as I see fit. So far, all I've done is enjoy.

Processed in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) at 5500°K and Tint=0. No lens corrections. Raw processing was performed identically for all apertures, using f/5.6 as the reference frame for brightness.
