OM 350 mm f/2.8

A selection of shots taken with the OM 350 mm on film and digital. I'd forgotten how versatile the lens is until I started copying slides last winter. Here's a few film shots from Saskatchewan in the 90's.

First a big sun taken with a forgotten combination of TC's. The dust bunnies are distant wildfowl.



Snow covered prairie with hoarfrost covered trees, taken while scouting a location for a moonrise shot.



The moonrise shot taken that evening.



And finally, a Prairie Lily taken with the lens.



If there's any interest in this thread I'll continue adding images to it.

A copy of a slide taken in Cheshire in the 90's using a forgotten combination of tele-converters and extension tubes. The Demoiselles were in the middle of a water inlet of a reservoir a couple of yards away.
