Diamonds for Christmas

Christmas Day in the Ottawa, Ontario arrived with morning temperatures of about -30. Some freezing drizzle from early days stayed coated on the trees. I went out into the woods with my own new Christmas present (the EF 35mm f/2 IS) to “break it in”. The cold winter sun was so bright that I could scarcely lift my eyes, and, in fact, it is placed right above my point of focus on the icy branch. I wanted to catch the light through the ice. This lens showed some amazing flare resistance, because, as you can see, there is essentially no negative effect from having the bright sun directly in the middle of the frame. Some winter diamonds…right in time from Christmas.
