Visions Members Capture the Eclipse

Several of our Visions members were able to view and capture the solar eclipse in and around Aberdeen yesterday morning.  An eclipse is a rare sight to see, and we were lucky enough to catch enough breaks in the clouds to get some images from a variety of locations including Dunnottar Castle, the Ythan at Newburgh and a school roof!  Here are some of the resulting shots.

Street Photography Trip

This Saturday morning some of our Visions members met up for a bit of street photography.  They were met by local photographer Robert Kerr who was on hand to help out and give some advice while they scoured the streets of Aberdeen and the market for some photo opportunities.  An enjoyable time was had by all, and we look forward to seeing some more of the pictures.  Our current competition theme is street photography so there should be some good entries.

Spectra

Last night some of our intrepid Visions members went along to Spectra, Aberdeen’s festival of light. Here are some of the images from the evening.

Natural Phenomonen Captured by Visions Member

Lucky Visions member Derek Gray saw a Brocken Spectre while descending Cul Mor on the west coast, and managed to get this fantastic shot of it.  A Brocken spectre is a magnified shadow of the observer cast against mist or cloud and surrounded by a rainbow.  It can only be seen when certain conditions are met and each observer can only see his/her own Brocken Spectre.  Thanks to Derek for sharing his image with us.

Happy Christmas from Visions

For our final session of the year we had a social night where we took the opportunity to eat, drink and chat together.  We also viewed the results of our Christmas Photo Challenge which can be seen below.  From all at Visions we would like to wish you a Happy Christmas and all the best for 2015.
