# 518 - Covering 08 October to 14 October 2018
Posted By: Vaskebjorn, 10-08-2018, 05:52 AM

Welcome to the 518th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 08 October to 14 October 2018.

Last week week was a bit low on photos, so i do expect a catch up this week with a lot of fantastic photos this week. I liked last weeks hosting a lot seeing all these marvelous photos and I am confident this time there will be beautiful ones to.

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer 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.

To post your great photos, just hit reply and attach away.

Feel free to start immediately.


consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.

identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.

And please invite 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), but if you are interested and willing to host POTW, please send me a PM, before I contact others.

If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one. If the thread doesn't start, please contact the host, via PM.

Photos from a recent hike in the white mountains (shot with the k3ii, 16-85 and dfa 100 macro).

First some waterfalls.

Then a lucky break in the clouds while descending at sunset. There were clouds above and below us.

I think I was luck timing this trip, the leaves were so brightly colored

I did some hiking around Duluth Minnesota, this is part of the St. Louis River section that the fur traders had to portage around to get from Lake Superior to the inland lakes and streams. Shot this handheld with the K3 and DA100 macro, I used a high ISO to get a fast shutter speed. The second pic is a 100% crop.

I noticed on upload that the size of the second pic was reduced from around 1M to about 200k bytes - the 1M looks a bit sharper.

Wow some fabulous stuff around here. These hikers are making me quite envious! And so too are the birdies! I'll not hold it against ye all! A contribution from me. ITs been a tough couple of weeks, and did not get around much. Mostly Zoo Lake, where I do a daily 9km exercise walk.
It's Gosling season

And just gotta share this even if it is just outside the time frame-happily busy on the net on Sunday afternoon, and hear some chirping sounds and thinking its gotta be a bird in the yard, I rushed to the bedroom to get the Camera, and upon coming back to the lounge, what should I see, but four goslings/ducklings come straddling , chirping and calling (for parents no doubt) into the lounge. I just could not believe my eyes! All helpless and lost, and where an how they got here will remain a mystery. In any event, I gathered them into a box, and took them to the SPCA, except they are closed on Sundays. So I had to keep them overnight, and next morning I took them back to the SPCA, where they were to be given to an organisation that will find a suitable home and/or raise them to adulthood. I think they are Mallard ducklings. Too a few shots of them too. Here they are in the box.

Beautiful Rose @ Zoo Lake

Lily in the dark

One of my friend's Protea always delivers stunning specimens and here they rightfully put it on display in the home

And happened to travel past a street that has several antique shops,so took some time out to capture these fascinating objects from history.
