Welcome to the 561 (POTW), covering 5 Aug - 19 Aug 2019
Posted By: eva, 6 Days Ago

Welcome to the 561 edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 5 Aug - 19 Aug 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.

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. Here are the records of recent POTW thread hosts: 390-406 smf, 407-408ramseybuckeye, 409-411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson 428-451 smf 452, 453, 454 StephenHampshire 455 Aslyfox, 456 StepehenHampshire, 457-466 noelcmn, 467 Aslyfox, 469-470 aaacb 471 Madmathmind, 472 Madmathmind, 473 Eva, 474 rjbrett, 475 Aslyfox, 476 - 485 noelcmn, 486 - 488 rjbrett, 489 clackers, 490 - 498 rjbrett, 499 StephenHampshire 500 smf, 501 StephenHampshire, 502-505 Eva, 506-525 Vaskebjorn, 526-538 noelcmn, 539-545 aaacb

Thanks for hosting again Eva, nice birdies!
Its been a busy week, with Friday being a Public holiday here (Woman's Day) and I had planned to go to Pilanesberg National Park, bu my radiator cap packed up the day before, and I had no time to get another one-I got it on the public holiday. Disappointing but I was able to get to a place called Norhtern Farm with some of my young people from church, a wonderful birding place. Here's a few from that visit




As is usual withe the diminutive Cape White Eye, you hear it before you see it- such a beautiful chirp


This fellow was there to greet us at the bird hide


Some reverse B/W, then Grayscale to get this effect


The farm has a large population of cattle


And a visit to another small municipal nature reserve on Saterday - I was in the area and I popped in for an hour or so.

What a fine group of images, Pentaxians!
Thanks for hosting again, Eva.
These images were captured at Dow Gardens in Midland, Michigan, with a Lensbaby Sol 45 on my monopod-mounted Pentax K-S2.
Best wishes to all!

Thanks Eva for starting things off again. Some nice photos so far -- birds, spiders, sunsets, dogs, flowers!

I spent a few weeks in the U.S. including a week of camping in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. Fabulous place. Ancient (circa 1250 A.D.) ruins built onto cliff faces by Ancestral Puebloans. Many of them are still in remarkable condition. Some wildlife and gorgeous scenery as well.
