The story behind the image
I had received my brand new Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens as a replacement for my broken 24-70 from 2005 (full story here) and wanted to put it to work as soon as possible to see what it can do for me.
So I took my bike and camera bag and drove off to the former military airfield of Neubiberg. It’s a large park today and is situated right around the corner, just a few minutes of biking.
The result: several shots of the sunrise over the park as well as stunning shots of the high grass blades illuminated by the rising sun, with a fantastic bokeh. Magnificient.
And yes, the new lens performs perfectly. It just does not feel as the old one which I got used to over the 15 years I owned it.
