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?

This photo was taken in a halucinant landscape during the climb on the edge of the crater of Kawah Ijen (Java). The colors of the trees and plants are real (no PS modification) and are due to toxic fumes ejected by the volcano. A little higher, there are only a few trunks tortured and burned by these vapors. Not the best place to live! (Google translation from French)
