Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

These rafting novices are putting in at the rapids of the Ocoee River in SE Tennessee. This is their last chance to back out.

    This is a wonderful shot...Those rapids look a little rough ..My husband and I spent our belated honeymoon years ago going down the rapids at St. Croix Falls in the fall of the year in a homemade boat that my husband made ... We had to be careful not to steer into jagged rocks, besides the rapids almost carried us away...My husband lost his wedding ring pulling the boat out of a spot where we got hung up....Then to top it off the first night that we camped under some trees there was a tornado..and it knocked down trees all around our tent:) Not to mention the bear that we saw evidence of that had been around our tent on the second night...No.. not for the faint of heart..LOL

    Definitely not for the faint of heart!!! We had a few water adventures ourselves years ago, had all of our food stolen out of the ice chest during the night as we slept in the bed of our pickup. They were thoughtful little thieves, they left us milk and orange juice but took everything else and they pushed the ice chest back into place so we didn't notice what had happened until we went to make breakfast!!!
