I somehow think using a zoom end and teleconverter for the day prime challenge is little bit cheating, but since I happened to use such combination with a suitable focal length for this week, I guess I can share one picture here...

Barnacle geese (Branta leucopsis)

α7R IV + Sony FE 5.6-6.3/200-600 G OSS + 1.4× TC @ 280 mm, f/9, 1/1600 s, ISO 1250

Thanks for the reminder Fred

I also have a 150 mm and a 2x converter, but mount wise they can't be put together.

So I'll resort to the 300 mm zoom end of my Tamron 70-300 LD Telemacro, an el-cheapo lens with a surprising good optical quality for its price.

300-1: Agapanthus seed pods



300-2: Succulents


Both on an A700 + Tamron 70-300 LD Telemacro @ 300 mm & f5.6

Hopefully I have time and good light later this week to show a few more.

That good old Tamron is still doing a nice job Pieter!
Struggling to find time to shoot for Day 300 with bad weather and the early sunsets these days (if any).

Heres at least two (desperate) indoor shots with Telemegor 5.5/150mm + 2x TC





Hope to do some more in the weekend.

My Day 300 was focused on my new home village, Ellewoutsdijk, or Ellesdiek as the locals say.

1 A pair of vases


2 Demeter, goddess of harvest and agriculture


3 What goes up must come down


4 The cemetery gate


5 The cemetery gate, a change of focus


6 Cemetery symbolism

And two from the (nightmare of) Oudelande, a neighbouring village:

7 Happy Halloween


8 Halloween twins


all with a7iii + AOMZ 3M-7K 5.6/300 mirror lens (M42)

I had planned to use another 300mm mirror lens but 90% of my lenses are still in moving boxes and I couldn't find it. But I was happy to make some shots, these are barren times for my photography!

Good to see you jumping in again Leo! A very fine first set with #2 and 4 as my favourites. And a bit of a lurid second set, but well captured.
Lenses in moving boxes? That's not where they belong, but I can imagine that it takes a while to unbox your complete collection

Thanks Fred!
Most of my Meyers are 'free' now. I hope to have all lenses unboxed before the start of DP 2021.

Fred and Pieter were talking about 300mm, so I dragged a 100-300APO around all day in the rain ... finally made some pictures with it, not much camera action from me lately. And thanks to you all I went out again the last two days (thumbsup)!

Well done Paul! Nice autumn colours, enhanced by the moist
