Welcome back to another episode of That Was The Week That Was, series 55. My thanks to Friendly Photon for doing an excellent job as host last week and for selecting my photo. :happy:

If you haven't read them before, be sure and check out the guidelines for participating in TW3.

Let's run this puppy through midnight YOUR time on Sept 30th (thirty days has september...), show us what you've been shooting, where you've gone, what you look like, etc...

And to hopefully lure back a few of our "drifters", the max # of images will be as follows...if you haven't participated in the last TWO TW3 threads (ie, since TW3 #52), you get to post an extra TWO PHOTOS, for a total of ELEVEN. Everyone else gets the usual NINE, ok?

I'll get us started with some colourful sunrises from over the weekend...

Sunrise


Orange


Wind Turbines (wide)


I played with the white balance on these to get a few different effects. also used colored grad filters for #1 and #3.
Regarding photo #3, they are adding 50 more large turbines at this windfarm so there will be many more to shoot soon...there are already hundreds, i believe.

OK, return to your corners and come out shootin'!

This is going to be a hodgepodge week for me. Here are a few so far.

Birthday bubbles (from my granddaughter's 3-year old B-day party).

Pyracantha berry bokeh. (The Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f1.4 is supposed to be a bokeh monster so I thought I'd give it a whirl here. Hope you like it.)

Superb Sunsets Mike! What colour!

Love the bokeh from the Voigtlander Tim! What a great example of its outstanding ability to produce amazing images with the proper operator.

Oh don't worry, today we'll actually be taking our cameras out with us in VEGAS!

(yesterday was the "post long-ass flight nap + general dazed wandering of the strip with no will to carry a camera around" event)
Photons are your friends! :-)

strange, it seemed like a whole day passed and no new activity on FPZ.

Let me bump this to say may your weekend shooting be bountiful and full of discovery. Around here, I have been noticing some brilliant red cloud filled skies at sunrise and sunset - i really want to get out there and shoot something.
