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?

While photographing the beautiful lighthouse at Tybee Island, GA, there was a heavy thunderstorm brewing and moving in from the West. I thought the dark gray skies made a perfect backdrop for the golden sea oats.

    The sun tipped grasses make a wonderful barrier between the storm and the sun. Can hear the gulls wheeling and crying above the 'toy' lighthouse.
