Fan Of… OM Zuiko 350mm lens, part 2

This is a contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Fan Of… #56 photo challenge and part two of my ramble about the Olympus OM Zuiko 350mm lens I have been using since 1996. If you missed part one it’s here.

Part 2 is about some of the unexpected photos taken with the lens.

Tuesday Photo Challenge - Trees

Hoarfrost covered trees on snow covered farmland at sunrise near Punnichy, Saskatchewan in 1998. I was scouting a location to photograph a moonrise.

While waiting for the moon to rise over the snow covered farmland in the above photo I photographed a group of White-tailed Deer across a small valley at dusk.

A giant sun pillar.

A sun pillar behind Chantry Island, Lake Huron, Ontario in 2005. The biggest and brightest sun pillar I have ever seen made even bigger by using the 350mm.

 

Banded Demoselles.

A female Banded Demoiselle egg laying while being watched by a male. Photographed in southern Cheshire in 1997. The insects were in the middle of a water inlet to a reservoir several metres from solid ground. So I used a long forgotten mix of extension tubes and teleconverters behind the lens to get the magnification and close focusing I needed.

Thanks Jez. It was quite hard picking just six and I didn’t realise that 5 of the 6 were from the years I was using film with the lens. Not very balanced, now I’m wondering if I shouldn’t have divided the posts up by film and digital.
