Posted By: nosliwmit, 12-02-2019, 02:53 PM

Welcome to the 577th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 25th November - 8th December 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 youare 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.

Thanks for hosting again nosliwmit, and what a cracking set to open up this weeks POTW. Just love #3 and #5 aaacb. Gorgeous shot smf, though it makes me envious. We are suffering heat wave after heat wave here. And as usual, appreciate the views of Hong Kong nosliwmit, #3 is a cracker too! Merv-O- Merry Christmas . And the train wisperer is here with some of his fantastic train shots! Just beautiful Stephen.
A contribution from me as it is going to be a busyish rest-of-the-week.
Had reason to be at the airport the other day and spent some time shooting.






BIF shooting is always a pleasure, despite the often failures






And the kids from the orphanage is never out of the equation

First time poster here. A few shots from my hike up in Sedona last Saturday. A snow storm rolled through northern AZ just after Thanksgiving, so red rock country was looking particularly impressive. All shots with my K1 mk II and Irix 15mm lens.
