Despite the dark outside our members managed to take some nice images. Some indoors, some outdoors with lights, some even went abroad to get inspiration.
We had our Print of the Year competition with joint winners Michéle Emslie and Heather Sharkey. We had also chosen to have prizes in a number of categories:
Architecture – Annette Murty
Macro – Pamela Stuart
Abstract – Heather Sharkey
Portrait – Michele Emslie
Natural world – Michelle Emslie
Photos posted during December on FaceBook from the usual suspects, Annette, Graeme, Alan, Kirsty, Martin. Wintery scenes from Canada, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Wildlife from the highlands, but not all roaming the country side I think.
Most prolific photo poster by far was Annette this month with nature and travel shots from Canada. Kevin orgaised an evening of spash and flash with exploding lightbulbs and pool diving strawberries. Graeme some nice street photography and autumnal images. Aberdeen Art Gallery finally opened, fireworks at the beach provided inspiration as well.
As usual a great variety of image subjects, some from our internal Red competion, holiday trip images from Canada, Trevor’s hill walking shots. Alan Meek’s annual visit to Silverstone’s F1 race, etc.
Images were posted from our club evening playing around with polarised light, an evening with the Travelling Cooper, an evening visit to Old Aberdeen and a few members ventured out on clear Saturday nights to take images of the Milky Way. And then of course landscape and wildlife photos, some from the other side of the Atlantic.
A unusual amount of images were posted this month, quite a few excellent street photos from London by Graeme Youngson, of which I’ve chosen just a few. We had trips out to Huntly for raptor photography, an evening architecture shoot at RGU , an evening playing around with glass indoors. Annette posted images from Canada, Alan and Kevin went out to shoot the moon. Some members visited a steam fair at Crathes, and I posted a few from England. Enjoy!
Holiday photos from Canada, a Visions trip to Troup Head Gannet colony and some images I liked culled from our Facebook page. Hope you like my selection:
