POTW #538 covering period 18 February - 3rd March 2019
Posted By: noelcmn, 02-25-2019, 03:36 AM

Welcome to the 538th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 18th February - 3 March 2019. Let's see what you have been shooting these past two weeks. 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.

The end of February usually means a change in seasons, as we move (us who live down south of the equator) from Summer to Autumn, and those who live above the equator, its spring time. Let's see if we can make it a mini-theme for this weeks POTW- Seasonal Change. Otherwise just post, post and post!

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.

And as usual, kicking us off- visited Kloofendal Nature Reserve on Sat and Sun, and got a few I liked.
Plenty of young Hyraxes. According to scientists, their closest relatives are Elephants.

Every time I am there, I try to capture the swallows just as they take an sip of water in flight. A long way off with my timing, but still, I liked this one.

Here's one that represents change

Nice to find a Katydid-small youngster

Finally got the body of my KS-2 back for aperture block repair (shout out to PC35 who did amazing work, amazingly fast!) and so it meant I got to try out my new Sigma 10-20 3.5. Stella isn't very excited about it, but I can tell this lens and I are going to be great friends.

Winter has been really long here in Ontario, Canada, so I've got limited options for moving around outside in the deep snow. However, I have a small group of whitetail deer in my backyard most days, and I've been photographing them from a small blind back there. Here are a couple of shots from this winter activity... Pentax K-S2, 135mm SMC Pentax F2.5 manual lens.

Floral photography was one of my top objectives when I recently bought a Lensbaby Sol 45. I captured the images below with both the Sol 45 and a Raynox M-150 on my Pentax K-S2. (Cross-posted from Single iIn, K-S2 and Lensbaby threads)

Musings on the Delaware River

1. USS New Jersey (most decorated ship in the US Navy) from the Ben Franklin Bridge in a moving car (not a great pic-but love the history)
2. Industrial section of the Delaware (Old Phila. Electric Plant in the right background
3. Commerce on the Jersey (East) side of the Delaware
