Visions goes to Spectra

Please click on the photos to see them larger and the  galleries to scroll through the photos with the photographer’s names.

On Thursday 9th February Visions Camera Club went en masse to Spectra, Aberdeen’s annual Festival of Light. At least twenty members visited the festival some going back more than once to try for that ‘special’ photo.  Over 175 photos were uploaded to Facebook …….

But first sustenance needed to be ingested….

Then it was out into the cold, battling with the crowds for a place to put a tripod. Some people decided it was easier to snap with a hand held camera and high ISO settings.

There seemed to be three favourite exhibits that everyone wanted to photograph.  The first was the burning heads.

The shot above took an exposure of 1.3 seconds and a lot of patience.  Here are a selection of the other great shots.

Another favourite exhibit was the balloon cloud. It is very interesting to see all the different photos people took of this.

The cloud is great, but the people under the cloud are even better.

Another popular area for photography was St Nicholas Kirk where the giant spiders could be seen.

I loved this photo of Anna’s as it is so atmospheric.

There were plenty of other areas to photograph…
