Welcome to POTW #48, 2/8/09 - 2/22/09

Rules as before:

1) No theme just your favorite stuff.
2) Let's keep it to about 4-6 images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big each week .
3) Any Pentax camera is fine, film, P&S, DSLR (or Samsung DSLR)
4) Date : Sunday 2/1/09 - Sunday 2/15/09
5) Enter anything you shot last week or this current week until the thread closes.

Nice captures borno! Talk about being at the right place.
Toshi, I like the surf shot and the heron flying away from you.
These are nowhere near as dramatic as the previous posts. Got these from the local schools Valentines Games Gala.

Very nice captures were posted yesterday! Those eagles shots are magnificent borno!
Here something more depressing: the rain on our window last night....

Yup, it looks like a plump koi/carp lunch for the heron

Clemson Research Station

Everything around here is brown or gray. Depressing. Clemson University has a research station near our home where we walk every chance we get. These two were taken on their property. I was testing a new lens. Hope you like them.

Whatever lens you got looks like a good one Susan
Is that a W14 Case?

Here's a quick sample from after work:

The photo of the safe is a reshooting, with what I hope is better composition, of an earlier image.
Suggestions and critiigues are welcome (if you prefer, by PM or by e-mail).

Tom, those eagles are killing me. What a fantastic bird. Well captured. I have no idea what a W14 Case is. The sign was on the front of an old tractor. I do like to photograph bits and pieces of old farm equipment.
Rense, I love what you did with the rain shot. It looks like a UFO that tied one on.

Slowpez - nice captures, I like the second one. Case is a tractor brand, W14 is probably a certain type?
Tom - I WANT EAGLES TOO! We don't 'ave 'em....
Smf - thanks for the shots. Again, this safe is very nice!
