POTW #633 Covering Period June 2021 and July 1-3, 2021
Posted By: smf, 06-28-2021, 07:11 AM

Welcome to the 633rd edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering June 2021 and July 1-3, 2021. Let's see what you have been shooting and/or processing.

Please note that because very few photographers participated last week, I have broadened the eligible period this time to include all of June plus the first three days of July. POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range.

My images were captured with my monopd-mounted Pentax K-S2 and an older SMC Pentax Macro1.4/100mm lens. For the daylily close-ups I added a Rayox M-150.

To post your 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.

Thanks very much to all previous hosts and to people who have posted images!

and a couple variations of the pond and surroundings (k1ii and fa 43). even though it was late morning, there was a thin cloud cover that helped soften the light

Quite agree, wonderful start to this weeks POTW. And the B/W Lilies is Fab! Thanks for hosting smf.
Let me make a contribution. Nice to see a Black headed Heron at Zoo Lake yesterday

Sunday's visit to Kloofendal Nature Reserve

A visit to Everard Read art Gallery is always fascinating

Johannesburg Botanical Gardens, where these are blooming in abundance

Lots of sparkle on June 16, a national holiday here, and we took the kids from the orphanage to Florida Lake.

Looks like a dead leaf, didn't really notice it as a moth until reading your description
