Picture of the Week POTW 396 March 27-April 3, 2016

Welcome to another round of Picture of the Week (POTW). This is edition #396.

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.

Only one other photographer joined thread 395. Please consider inviting other Pentaxians to join us.

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

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 on Sunday. If the thread doesn't start, please contact bluestringer, Moderator, via PM.

Here are the records of previous POTW thread hosts: 1 Peter Zack, 2 Eaglerapids, 3 rmtagg, 4 Peter Zack, 5 daacon, 6 Bramela, 7 mtnbearhug, 8 dantuyhoa, 9 gawan,10 roentarre, 11 daacon, 12 Kris, 13

Had a nasty ice storm a couple of days ago, power was out for 23 hours. On Friday afternoon the sun came out...

The cardinals are busy celebrating spring. This guy was kind enough to let me get within about 30 feet of him and get some good shots. This was with my K3, DA*300mm and HD 1.4x teleconverter mounted on my Manfrotto 561BHDV monopod (extends to 6.56 feet, great for shooting up into the trees). The details in his plumage shows how good this combination can be.



Spring also brings an end to the minor hockey season (at least for a few weeks until tryouts for next season start). I took my K3, and DA* 50-135mm to my grandson's final playoff game - they lost.



And here's one from the ice storm that slide its way, leaving power outages and traffic chaos, across southern Ontario on Friday.

Stu, thanks for the reminder. It's been quite busy lately, but the PotW deserves attention.

A few from Saturday.






From Thursday

WOW, cracking images in this weeks POTW- starting with our host.
Thanks for hosting-again-Stu. A more humble contribution from me.

Spring is finally here so it's time to bring out the long glass.
Sigma 50-500 on the K3.




Sometimes I get a little bored waiting for the birds to show up.


Of course if a Sigma 8-16 shows on your door step you have to try it out.




Old reliable my 16-50 on the K3.
