There was a beautiful sunrise a week ago, this was just as the sun was peeking through the horizon and starting to light up the sky
both shot at ISO 640 and F4
first one was 1/2000 of a second, the other 1/3000th of a second ( that because I wanted to keep it a tad darker)

I got ahead of the gals to take their picture with all the snow behind them
Imnot a big fan of the 35mm takumar to be honest, but its half of my bad weather go to kit, the ither being the 55mm/2 takumar that I prefer more. you can tell how bad the weather is by what lens I cart around with me, if its the 55mm I am a bit worried about it, if its the 35mm then the weather is really bad and I dont care if it gets ruined ( it cost me 20 dollars!)
ISO 400 f5.6 1/400th of a second

One other thing that plays apart is that the modern lenses all have fantastic coatings on them, and in most lenses they are multicoated. I believe that this 1964 Summicron 50mm has coatings on it too, but I dont know how many . you can see that it gets a bit of flare when light hits it an angle but its OK when straight on, then again, store lights arent as bright as the sun through a frosted glass window either.

My daughter after she cannoned into the pool from the water slide at the local aquatic centre during a birthday party , I converted it to B+W as the darker shadows and contrast brought out the splash better .
ISO 800 f3.5 1/640th of a second shot in manual mode
here is a shot of the slide in the background before festivities started
