New Years Sunrise over Durango (2017)

This morning I got up at 4:30 AM to climb to the top of Smelter Mountain above Durango to photograph sunrise over the city. Let's just say that it was well worth the trip.

I shot this with my new Contax/Yaschica 35-70 lens mounted to my Sony A7RII. The C/Y lens is quite old and is manual focus and aperture, but wow it has nice rendering and is quite sharp. I really like it so far!
