Great 250 series Michael, seems a very nice lens. Never seen one in real life yet.

Don't forget, today week 38 started for focal length between 263 and 269 mm, quite exotic but we'll see if something shows up

Great series Michael. I see the occasional 250 RF but always for astronomical prices. I want one, but not desperately enough.

Nice work Fred, especially the "bubble bath"
Normally as the year progresses less and less exotics possibilities seem to be present but these examples are probably the exception to the rule.

Another new week started today:

1 peekaboo !


2 Kinglet action shot


3 Cicada shell

Thanks for keeping this going! I am not sure if I will find the time for Day 280 shots, although I have two options : 200 x 1.4 and 140 x 2.
We'll see.

I have one more photos for day 280. This time Minolta 80-200 APO at 200mm with Kenko teleconverter x1.4. The camera does not see the teleconverter and therefore it cannot be seen in the Exif.
Breakfast, or rather dinner, on the grass.

Sony A99II, Minolta 80-200 APO HS 200mm F3.2 + Kenko x1.4

@4paul, I like "peekabooh", a great example how to frame/compose when your lens isn't long enough. Also the spire after sunset is nice with great colours.

@mariuszlo, I wouldn't get close to that hornets nest while I wouldn't mind joining the table of the dinner in the park

@Fred_S, I like the composition of the first and the B&W conversion of the second. But I find the composition of the second one a bit too "central" if you get what I mean.



I also managed some day 280 photo's
I went to "Drieboomkensberg" (Three tree mountain), a pilgrimage spot in the woods north of us. Mountain is a big overstatement (it's a hill of not even 5 meter above the surrounding fields). For the Dutch speaking here's a website describing the history of this spot, and if you don't speak Dutch and still interested Google translate will help.


280-1: Saint Mary



280-2: Someone put "tulips" in one of the candle holders



280-3: Lanterns



When I arrived at the Drieboomkensberg there was a gentleman singing classic Italian songs. He had a portable CD player with him as an "orchestra". After talking to him I found out he is 81 years of age and singing has been his passion all his life. He even had an offer to become a professional opera singer but declined as he found it too risky at that time to support his young family with two kids. I took some photo's of his performance and sent these to him. Here's three I liked for showing here.

280-4: Using his hands as a true Italian



280-5: Framed by the candle holder



280-6: Close-up portrait


All A7ii + LA-EA4 + Kenko 1.4x Teleplus Pro 300 (unchipped) + Min 200/2.8 APO HS G

Given there's much less day prime action as the year progresses I'm posting the reminder for the coming three weeks together.

For me only a 300 mm zoom end in week 43, and I hope some others can join there as well. But also different length are welcome as well. We'll see.
