I find it refreshing to know that there people dedicated our Nation’s fine tradition of eccentricity. The Chap Olympiad was a fun event full of people in some fantastic costumes, doing silly things and generally having a fun time. The fine weather was perfect for the event.

I am also very pleased how well my new TC (the Nikon TC 14 II) works with the 70-200. All of these shots were taken with that combo on my 800E.
