Took this photo during a day trip to the area around Kebnekaise mountain massif in Swedish Lapland. The weather was perfect, it’s cold, and the sky is clear.
I really like to compose with the sun in the frame, and with the NiSi 15mm F4 all becomes like a dream. Being able to get such clear and distinct sunbeams and completely without some unwanted reflections is fantastic. Then I shoot a lot in the white snow-covered landscape, it is very important for me with a lens that gives me as few reflections as possible when shooting straight to the sun, cause when you have big pure white areas even a small reflection will ruin the photo. It’s a big benefit to be able to get this kind of sunbeams already at a quite big aperture, cause using a to the small aperture will easily give you diffraction which is very visible with today’s high megapixel cameras. The NiSi 15mm f4 with its special design has really opened up a new way of taking photos for me, and I’m now more inspired than ever to compose with the sun as an ingredient in my photos. The NiSi 15mm wide-angle lens gave me the opportunity I needed to capture such a moment.
