POTW #390 February 14-20 2016
Posted By: smf, 02-15-16
Welcome to another round of Picture of the Week (POTW). This is edition #390.

POTW is a great spot to show off any shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week.

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix
2) Six or fewer images per person per thread to prevent thread bloat
3) Any Pentax or Samsung camera, film or digital

Thanks very much to previous host K David and to all others who have hosted and/or posted in previous weeks' threads.

The current host will invite a new host 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.

Below are three images from my first attempt at photography of frozen soap bubbles (with SMC Pentax M Macro 1:4/100 on Pentax K-S2) and an image of snowflakes with the same lens plus extension tubes. Silver Efex Pro from the Nik Collection was used for two of the bubble images, with Viveza and Elements 13 also having been used on the snowflakes image.

Weather was good this weekend, so took a hike around Dinorwic Slate Quarry in North Wales. It was the second largest in the world covering 700 acres of mountainside.

Disused now, but I am impressed with what men's labour could achieve in 200years, without modern equipment.

My first time with POTW.

Here are a few shots from a Valentine's Day visit to the Brazos Bend State Park, southwest of Houston, Texas. I was trying out my new tripod and gimbal mount.

This is a chance photo waiting for the park gate to open in the morning. It is handheld with the Pentax 18-135 mm kit lens; 1/4 second at f/9 and ISO 800. I saw the sky and just had to grab my camera.


Sunrise at Brazos Bend


The following images were all taken with a Sigma 150-500 mm on the tripod.



Pied-billed Grebe



White Ibis



Little Blue Heron



Red-shouldered Hawk with some nest material



Anhinga drying its wings


Thanks for letting me share.

Thanks for hosting Smf, some cracking good shots here with week, starting with our host. AggieDad, what a great way to introduce yourself-welcome to POTW. A more humble submission from me-mostly from the monthly and weekly challenges.

Took this this week on a family adventure. We were standing on a frozen lake!

Three more from this week.

This is a wire-and-bead beetle photographed with a K50 on tubes (at f/1.2, but with the tubes the effective f-stop is somewhat smaller).



A trickle of water that has built up an "ice fall" through the winter. DA70.



Hand-held shot with a DFA100 + HD1.4x TC.
