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.

Carms Ramos talk: Project 365

This week at Visions, member Carms Ramos talked to us about her journey through Project 365 and shared some of her fantastic images. Project 365 is a well known photography project where you take a photo every day during a year. Carms has already inspired some of our members to try out some similar projects and she gave us some excellent advice and inspiration to try different types of photography. Take a look at some of Carms wonderful images from her 365 project.

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.

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.
