After a high around 70° we’ve settled back to near 50°. The air is calm. The sky is clear. The dew point is in the low 40°s. The weather is perfect.
Connecticut doesn’t get this type of loveliness often enough. There are days like this scattered through April and May. There are more in September, but those don’t count because they’re just a reminder summer’s gone, winter’s next.
How do you celebrate a day like today? What do you do? The answer for me was to take a photo to celebrate the night.
This shot is taken with my Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens. It’s a 10 second exposure at ISO 200.
I don’t use this lens enough! For work like this it’s extremely difficult to focus. There’s no “auto” when it’s pitch black. Unfortunately, infinity in reality doesn’t line up with the ∞ mark on the lens.
The lens is super fast. You see a lot more in this photo than I saw while standing there (in the dark hoping there were no animals stalking me).
To me it says everything about what this evening is.
