Welcome to another round of Picture of the Week (POTW).

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.
Please consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.
Please identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.
Also, 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, Ricoh 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

Took this shot from the SDSU campus this morning so I would have something to start the with. Used K1 with 55-300, handheld at 300mm, lots of cropping. Photo shows the top of the campanile tower, a couple hundred feet up or so. I really like this lens, think I got a good copy.

I think so too I'm very happy with mine as well, even if I don't use it much when I'm not travelling.

Some of last week's catch from me. Still all edited in the Ricoh GR. Seems to have been a lot of b/w this week...

My friend and I went to the Long Beach Vintage and Antique Market - definitely lots of very unusual things to see! These are three of them.

The scooter (a Vino) was photographed with a K-S2 in a parking lot as I was returning to my car from photographing raindrops on flowers and other targets of opportunity.



These great egrets were part of a flock of approximately 50 seen in Midland County, Michigan. The image was captured with a Pentax K-S2 and 100-300mm Pentax lens.

Images are cross-posted from the thread Forum Shots from Today.

I returned to the wetlands — this time with my monopod-mounted K-x.

Nice shots everyone -
savoche - I especially like the second shot with the cranes and clouds in black and white

EBirdy - those are unusual, the first one looks almost alive. I saw a camera very similar to that Kodak a couple weeks ago at a Civil War reenactment. A photographer was using it at the event - his was from around 1920, I would guess the one in your shot is from the same era.

smf - the silhouette and pastel sky works really well in that first Great Egret shot

perspicador - neat looking bird, haven't seen that type before with the orange spot on the chest

Before I catch some shuteye. A contribution from me-starting from today, and working backwards.
A stretch tent viewed with a Bower Fisheye 8mm


A tawnyflanked Prinia visited my yard today-I'm so happy


Spring is to be seen everywhere






The ducklings adding a note of new life to the season

Love the shot with the boats with the blue paint!

I was very fortunate Monday evening with my inexpensive, second-hand Sakar 1:8 500mm on my handheld K-x.
