Festive Drink Bokeh (Helios 44M-4 vintage lens)

Our wine of choice for Boxing Day. It's become a tradition that I post one of these pictures each Christmas.

Campo Viejo Gran Reserva, in a Campo Viejo glass.

A fine wine, highly recommended by the Howcroft household.

This beautiful Spanish Rioja along with Chilean Carménère feature on top of our wine list.

Shot with a vintage Helios 44M-4 58mm f2 lens, which is renowned for producing the beautiful bokeh you see in this photo.

I thought i shot this at f2, but when I looked at my lens this morning the aperture ring marker was half way between f2 and f2.8.

Great shot Phil

we love a good rioja too. Our Christmas day wine this year was brought from the Cremisan valley near Bethlehem, which seemed very appropriate. Fabulous bokeh served here with your wine.
