POTW-# 529- Period 17 - 30 December 2019- CHRISTMAS EDITION
Posted By: noelcmn, 12-23-2018, 11:12 PM

Welcome to the 529th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 17 December to 30 December 2018. For this weeks POTW, we are calling it "CHRISTMAS EDITION" and you are invited to submit all things related to Christmas and the holiday season.

I take this opportunity to wish all Pentaxians a very Merry Christmas, filled with love, laughter and joy! Hope you and yours have a wonderful safe and satisfying time!

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.

Please:

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.

Shorter than planned hike due to weather, turned around after Mt Pierce. Still got photos of a waterfall in addition to trees at the top. K3ii and da 16-85.







An ... eager .... photographer (?) had previously thrown flowers on the ice (not ok ), I should clone them out at some point.




edit: Inspired by the posts that followed mine, I took a fishy Christmas tree photo (8mm rokinon)

A few from the tree

Took a few of my tree today. I always find the tree lighting so nice and warm. All taken with K-70 and a Sears Auto 50mm f1.7 manual.

WOW, POTW is rocking already! Some Fab shots!
Merv-O- Just love that Egalitarian Office Display- cosy and sweeeet comes to mind!
aaacb- I'm still not speaking to you posting all these envy inducing images of snow and ice! The 2nd one is awesome, such drama there!
jg45, Dragonfire0522 and aaacb-delectable Christmas tree shots, all with lovely Bokeh. That Sears produces some wonderful bokeh! Welocme jg45 and Dragondfire0522 to POTW. Let's see some more!
Eva, once again some Fab shots. Domesticated Duck going for a walk/ Now I've heard (and seen) it all. Looks like a pretty disobedient duck to me My favorite is the Santa Cyclist, he is enjoying himself!

Keep them coming folk. Christmas day is nearly over here in South Africa, but the spirit lingers.

Merry Christmas all!

Santa was good to me. Spanking new K-1 Mark II under the tree!

Here's one of my patient camera/lens test models trying to look nonchalant...

This was taken with my DA 70 in full-frame mode.

Warmest wishes to all for a healthy, happy new year.

This is one of two snowy owls which birders have recently reported seeing near an airport. The image (which is cropped) was captured from inside a parked car with an smc Pentax-F 1:4.5-5.6 100-300mm on a Pentax K-S2. I have extreme close-up images of another snowy owl from a photo shoot at a rehab/rescue center, so this image was intentionally captured to show this bird's environment.

Nosliwmit - Congrats. Santa has avoided me this year . Cool shot, love the glowing ear.
As for Tungal and smf- they have joined Noel's "I am not speaking to them" club . Beautiful composition on the 3rd one Tungal. And I just love Snowy Owls, and always on the list for a visit whenever I go to Johannesburg Zoo. They had a lovely pair - I say "had" as I was last there in 2016. Also a cool composition.

Keep them coming folks!
