Welcome Back Jose, thank you for the Bird compliments but it is not very hard to get great shots of tied-down raptors, we were just filling in for your absence. The TC 300 is good with the 400 3.5 but not necessarily with other lenses. You will love the D600 for dynamic range and those pixels.
Jeff, thanks for the compliment, fantastic clouds and cliffs on broken hill
Thanks to all for your kind comments on my El Salvador photos, it is soul healing to spend time with family and friends, to find your place in their heart available as always. It is good to revisit the old places and see them with new eyes.
Today we took a trip to an old town, El Salvador had a great boom in the second half of the 19th century, most old towns date their expansion to this period as the country was being planted with coffee, my great grandfather came from Barcelona about 1860s, baked bread, bought land and had 12 kids. The rest is history.
This town is Suchitoto, it still looks like it did at the turn of the 19th century. This is in the interior and is hot at this time of the year. Beer Sweat hot.
D800 and 25-50mm, this gate was for oxcarts and was widened at the bottom to allow a car in.
