Gentle Persuasion Uploaded: 10/25/10 7:44 PM GMT

Image: Gentle Persuasion

I was returning from my Grandson's flag football game yesterday when I saw a scene I thought looked interesting. There was a grove of trees with their fall coloring, a field of green winter wheat and a clouded sky with sun rays fighting their way through. I stopped and got set to take the photo when this buggy with the two Amish boys popped up from over the rise. I was so surprised, I almost forgot to take a photo. I only got one. We traded greetings and they were gone. Enjoy.

Yea Ron I was shooting just below Saylorville Dam on the Des Moines river. The lake was at flood stage and they had the gate wide open letting water out. It makes for a lot of foam on the water but that is where the birds are fishing.

I'm still testing it out on both full frame and crop body cameras and have even tried using a 1.4x converter with it. The image quality with the converter isn't to bad but the autofocus hunts a lot especially on my crop body. I will post a picture I shot with the converter using the Canon 7dII that gives a field of view of 1,344mm.
