First Snow of the Year. CONTAX 28mm f2.8

Contax Zeiss 28mm f2.8 @f11 ISO 100 1/250s

January 7th and this is the first real snow of the year in Northern Maryland, and just a few inches. I’ve been using the 28mm f2.8 a lot for landscapes lately. Contrast and color is great. The lens will flare if pointed directly towards the sun. I managed to get this photo without any flare.

Contax Zeiss 28mm f2.8 @f8

Caught this morning’s sunrise with the CONTAX Zeiss 28mm f2.8. I’ve been playing around with bracketing exposure. This was five shots merged together in Adobe Lightroom. I’m not sure it was necessary for this image as the properly exposed image looks the same. This 28mm lens has great color and contrast, although this image is a bit dark. If you zoom in there is a bit of lens flare just above the cloud at the 10 o’clock position from the sun.
