Vista House Sunrise

This particular morning was the sunrise that never ended! I started off at the women's forum, photographed the sunrise at 5:20 and then came down here and spent a good 40 more minutes enjoying the great light.


As some of you know I've been searching for a wide lens that makes good sunstars for full frame nikon. I took a chance and bought this lens (14mm f/2.8) on ebay because it was the only place I could find one. The sunstars are great, but like everything in photography there are compromises. For one, it wont take filters. Also, it throws off some crazy glare that can be hard to deal with. I'm going to try making a gobo stick to block the sun rays and see if that works. For this image, I cropped it some to remove some really bad glare.
