For the first time since I returned from Germany, the sky was predicted to be clear overnight. I have been wanting to try the 8-15 mm fisheye lens (that I borrowed from my brother) for doing some star trail images, and night sky time-lapse videos. I did have an issue with condensation on the very wide lens in the early morning hours. I have had the condensation problem on other wide lenses (14 mm, 14-24 mm) in the past, and may need to fashion a small tape heater on the lens.

Seljalandsfoss, a Waterfall in Southern Iceland. You can actually walk behind the waterfall. It is a challenge to get a wide enough view and encompass the full dynamic range of the scene. All the time being covered with a mist of water from the waterfall.
