the most incredible and beautiful place I ever seen! at 1400 meter of altitude surrounded by mountain there's Castelluccio di Norcia at the border between the two regions of Umbria and Marche.This place is famous for the production of lentils that every year during the flowering period in combination with other endemic plants flowering give life to an incredible show of colors!

    @vtayeh oh no, this is taken with the old russian Helios 44-2 ! close focus and wide aperture to have a bokeh close to the petzval

    Wow! I have one of those lens and I recently saw an article of using it to take close up shots of snowflakes:…
    Now, I only have my cell phone for a digital camera but I figured I could use this similar set up for film. Definitely need to make some time for experimenting with this lens!
