The night was cloudy, I woke up every hour to check if the clouds were still present or there were the stars in the sky. Finally, at 3 am I found the stars in the sky! Happiness :-)

Balancing Rock a New Perspective

Barry Burgess

Canon 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | A 30 sec f 1.8 1600

I thought this lens would be Ideally suited to photographing the night sky and this photo is from my first adventure using this lens. I wanted a shot a little different from the ones everyone takes from the viewing platform so I went below and shot up. This enabled me to include more sky and a give a feeling of how massive this stone really is. I did not require any fancy lighting equipment, all I used was the face of my cell phone for the light painting. Photographed on Saturday Sept 23, 2017 in Tiverton, Nova Scotia.

Canon 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | A 30 sec f 1.8 1600

Photographing landscapes at night is a passion of mine.This was my first oppurtunity to test my new lens. I bought it since I felt it would be ideally suited for photographing the night sky. This photo is like my other one but in silohuette with no light painting. I wanted a shot a little different from the ones everyone takes from the viewing platform so I went below and shot up. This enabled me to include more sky and a give a feeling of how massive this stone really is. Photographed on Saturday Sept 23, 2017 in Tiverton, Nova Scotia.

Night Orchard

While exploring rural Nova Scotia the name of a narrow lane caught my attention and at the end was this abandoned farmhouse and apple orchard. I knew I had to return at night to photograph under the Milky Way.

Merry Pisser Falls and Milky Way

Barry Burgess

Canon 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | A 30 sec 1.8 3200

I enjoy photographing the coast at night, I also enjoy photographing waterfalls. I decided to combine the two and the direction of the coast here allowed me to include the Milky Way. Coastal waterfalls provide unobstructed views of the sky unlike inland waterfalls. Merry Pisser is the actual name of these falls and I often get asked this question.

Cars and Stars

I found out about this 1937 pontiac Silver Streak and old farmhouse last winter, I photographed them in april at night under a starry sky and intended to return in the summer when the Milky Way was higher. I was able to return but the Milky Way did not line up with the house but was over the car.

This was my first opportunity to use this lens...I went to a little church alongside of a road in Colorado between Fort Collins and Laramie with the intention of shooting the night sky...I was very pleasantly surprised at how well the Milky Way lined up over the church...the details and the crispness of this lens was amazing and to be able to pull that many stars at ISO-3200 was a huge!

I was watching football on TV when I looked out of the front window, and it was just that perfect photographic opportunity to use my new 14mm. I got the camera out despite the game and stepped out side and got this shot. Two exposures and I was back to football game. Perfect day in my opinion.

Zodiacal Light and Trees

Barry Burgess

This is not light pollution. I drove over two hours to Upper Ohio, Nova Scotia to avoid light pollution from spoiling my photo. This is the first time I observed Zodiacal light and it was easily visible to the eye. Sunlight reflecting off comet and asteroid dust concentrated in the plane of the solar system creates the zodiacal light.

Canon 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | A 20 sec 2.0 4000

On Saturday afternoon, April 14, 2018, I was in Kouchibouguac National Park scoting for locations to photograph the milky way and on the river in Middle Kouchibouguac I spotted a group of Ice fisherman. When I asked how thick the ice was the reply was about two and a half feet. They were very eager to take advantage of the first day of the fishing season as the river is not usually frozen this time of year. I took this photo on the ice in the middle of the Kouchibouguac river in the pre dawn hours of Sunday April 15, 2018. The temperature was -9 C. The line in the foreground is a deep crack in the ice under the snow. This image is a stitched panorama consisting of several vertical images using the Sigma 14mm f1.8 ART lens. The low distortion makes this lens ideal for wide angle stitched panoramas.

I had a 35 min window between moonset and twilight to photograph on the morning of Tuesday April 24, 2018. It was a very clear night and I decided to drive two hours to get as far from light pollution as possible, I ended up in Indian Fields, Nova Scotia not knowing where or what I would include in my photo. I was lucky to find this location just before twilight. This is a seven image vertical panorama stitch.

A metal sculpture created by sculptor Helga Natz in rural Nova Scotia sits amongst the trees and reaches for the stars. Normally I try to remove airplane light trails from my photos but remarkably this light trail exactly coincided with the apex or the sculpture. The light trail looks like a beam emanating from the sculpture so I did not remove it.

Milky Way on The Rails

Barry Burgess

Canon 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | A 30 sec 2.5 4000

Milky Way on The Rails I am always trying to find new ideas for my night photos, that and trying to avoid being run over by trains. The first train was a small freight train heading south it was quite noisy and it sounded its horn at a crossing before I saw it. To my utter surprise one half hour later a very large freight train came from the opposite direction, I did not hear it, it did not sound a horn and by the time I saw its light I had very little extra time to clear the tracks. Standing at the edge of the tracks I could feel a very strong wind.

Review by Sproesser
Posted on 1/26/2018
unbelievably sharp
I've used this lens for 10 weeks of shooting now, and I happened to need this viewing angle a lot in that time. I'm shooting on a Canon 5DSR at 50 megapixel, sharpness really matters to me. I can't get over how sharp this thing is. It's sharpest aperture is f5.6. The optimal aperture for astrophotography on my camera seems to be f4(minimal coma and vignetting). It stays super sharp through f11. the contrast is great. The sharpness, especially in the corners beats Canon's 14mm f2.8L II by a considerable margin. It's in the top 3 best lenses in my case, including the Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art. It's water resistant, which I very much need. When you take it out of the box you're immediately impressed by the fit and finish, it's a beauty. It's 80% heavier than the Canon equivalent, so keep in mind it's like adding another small lens to the weight of your bag, plus it's large! Sigma is putting Sony, Canon and Nikon to shame right now price/performance wise.

I'M, 100% Sold on Sigma Art.
I have been in the photographic profession for decades. A Nikon person at hart.Until Sigma introduced the new ART line of lenses. Now I stand before you and say proudly, that Sigma is the new go to professional lens maker on todays market. Bar-Non. I have (6) Art lenses and they all preform perfectly on all of our Nikon body's.
Just got the the new 24-70 and the new 14mm Art lenses and they are dead on focus right out of the box. All of our Art lenses performed perfect with out any dock adjustments period.Thank to all of the professionals at SIGMA for a job well done..
