This is the first photo I took with my new fisheye lens this morning! I got up extra early to go roam around on the beach and take photos of the sun rising up over the ocean. =)

I sprung for this Rokinon 8mm f3.5 Ultrawide Fisheye Lens last week during an Amazon Lightning Deal. I don’t know all that much about it yet because I’ve never shot with a fisheye before (and it’s the first completely manual lens I’ve owned since I was last shooting film in 2000), but it seems pretty decent, and I’m looking forward to learning how to use it over the next few weeks. =)
