After using Shiva‘s Canon EF 300mm f/4.0 L IS USM, I was very impressed with the result. I wanted to buy this lens. Right at that time I saw the sale of this lens at JJ Mehta Forum and went to get it. It reached me on 26th September 2009. I thank Siaon for selling me such a beautiful lens.

Same evening there was immersion of Sharada Idol taken in procession was going on as part of Dasara Festival. and It was best time to check out my newly possessed lens. Here is the shot taken in existing light of the tiger dance (hulivesha) artist breathing fire.

Tiger Dance is a unique form of folk dance in Dakshina Kannada that fascinates the young and the old alike. Since tiger is considered as the favored carrier of Goddess Sharada (the deity in whose honor Dasara is celebrated), this dance is performed during the Dasara celebration. It is also performed during other festivals like Krishna Janmasthami & Ganesh Chathurthi. There are over 150 troupes who perform this famed folk dance.

  1. Wow. This one is a classic image. I am sure it will fetch a lot of money if you sold it as stock 🙂 And congrats on the new lens. Too bad the 100-400L didn’t work well.
