Photographing Beautiful Vienna at Christmas

Heart Tree in Vienna, Austria (Nov 2022)

At this time of year, I wanted to share some seasonal images from my latest visit to beautiful Vienna for the Christmas Markets. You can view my public images here:

I took along the spectacular Sony 50mm F1.2 GM lens, and I’m so glad I did as it created such beautiful bokeh, which gives images such a unique, almost surreal, look, as shown in the images below. Being an F1.2 lens, this can capture scenes with very low light levels without adding noise, making it perfectly suited to the location.
