Welcome to the 586th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering period 3 - 16 February 2020. 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.


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.

Thanks for hosting again aaacb, just love that opening shot! And No 3!

Here's a contribution from me, starting with a critter that had me all excited! First time I got to see one. Rather colorful, if sinister looking mantis.

Caught him munching away on some poor critter

We've had lots of rain and storms over the last couple of days

Macrio stuff with some bokeh

A visit to the Lego SA office was a delight, especially seeing that these days it not just geometric Lego, but also a lot of animals. Of course Sci-fi was the there aplenty.

Johannesburg, where I have lived now for 36+ years

Tonto and the Supes

Had a friend visiting over the weekend and got out for a hike to check out Peralta Canyon in the Superstition Mountains and the Salt River valley in Tonto National Forest. The desert mountain vistas were fantastic!

Weaver's Needle

Cave Trail on the rim of Peralta Canyon

A huge rock overhang

And finally a neat look at Four Peaks, which is a local Phoenix landmark
