POTW #259 24 Mar 2013 through 07 Apr 2013
Posted By: Davidw0815, 03-31-2013, 10:26 AM

Welcome to Picture of the Week #259 covering 24 Mar 2013 through 07 Apr 2013.
Thanks to casil403 for taking on the hosting duties last week. If you would like to host next week please send me a PM, otherwise I will be asking you. POTW is a great spot to show off any shots you took last week but haven't processed until now. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week. POTW is a great place to show what you've been shooting day-to-day. We can share ideas, learn from one another, tell stories, and have a good time. There are just so many splendid photos out there so let's see them here at POTW 259!



Again same rules as always:

1) No theme, just post your favorite pix.
2) Lets keep it to fewer than 6 images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big each week.
3) Any Pentax camera or Samsung SLR is fine, whether it's film, P&S, or DSLR.
4) Enter anything you shot last week or during this current week until the thread closes.
5) The current host will appoint the new host as an invitation via Private Message (PM). If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one and the new thread will start between Noon EDT and 5PM EDT on Sunday. If the thread doesn't start, please contact bluestringer, Moderator via PM.

Here are the records of previous POTW threads:

Thanks for hosting, David! I have Easter-themed pictures from this morning--including a breakfast and egg hunt. The hunt was forced indoors due to weather. Barebones setup here: K-x and 18-55 kit lens.
















Thanks for looking!

We spent a few days in Tennessee visiting my oldest son and his wife. We always like to spend a little time in Nashville.
My son coaches high school soccer and we caught a game Thursday night at Lipscomb Academy in Nashville, my son's team West Creek from Clarkville won 3-2 in a good match.



My daughter came with us and had not been to Antique Archaeology, we were close by so we stopped in.


We also went to Belle Meade Plantation:




I got to send a little time in my son's backyard, which is a great birdwatching spot, this is a female eastern bluebird:

Thanks for hosting David, and look forward to some of your stunning landscapes here . Some great shots already. Here are a couple from me from just before Good Friday, when I took the camera for a quick spin.
Sun-kissed Fountain with some boats- @ Zoo Lake.


Here's just the fountain- I liked the way the sun caught the tip of the water fountain.


Mr Bunny


And Chocolate heaven


Was at Rietvlei Nature Reserve again today, and hopefully can post some shots from that visit.

Thanks for hosting David, sorry I forgot that in my earlier post.

Noel, very nice shots of the fountains
Paul, nice series, but I especially like that last one, "special delivery"1
Corey, nice experimenting, looks as though you have the patience to match your creativity, I predict some very good "flash" works in your future.
A few more from the Belle Meade Plantation:

A very unusual weekend. First, a 95 car wreck over the other left side of the first ridge at the NC/Va border in our frequent fog banks. Today a little military tree skimming on the valley below with two F-18s? Got a shot on the return as it accelerated above and just...left. Never know what to expect around here. Even the 50-200 WR focused on the aircraft.

Is that straight out of the camera or with lots of PP? Either way it's gorgeous!

@ csmoore - love that last green smoke shot!

@ casil - what gear do you use? such clarity and smooth bokeh on the wolfberry!

From this weekend.



It is so hard to capture her laughs and smiles. She does it all the time, but not often for the camera. It's almost like half the time they're only for me.... (least that's what i tell myself anyway... who says my photog skills need more work? )
