Theme:Signs of  Neon or Iridescent Colors - This week we are on the lookout for Neon or Iridescent Signs. Possibly add shapes to your colour to make it more of a challenge. Shapes  such as spheres, checker board, triangular, flat etc. ‘An iridescent color is a color that changes with the angle of view.’ Due to the COVID19 virus and the need to practice Social Distancing, Tuesday Group will not be meeting but we can capture images in our homes and neighbourhoods. As always, please share you photos on our Gallery and/or the VCC Flickr groups.
Hornby Island Spring Wildflowers *Multi-day trip*
POSTPONED - This Field Trip is currently FULL.  Please respond to  Richard James if you wish to be added to the wait list. This is an unforgettable four-day field trip to Hornby Island that is timed to try and hit the peak of spring flowering on the island. There may also be some interesting wildlife (sea birds, sea lions, whales, eagles, etc.) around. This includes a very observable Bald Eagle nest on Denman Island, you are shooting down into the nest. In 2018 and 2019 they raised chicks to fledging. The Island is a photographer’s paradise.  Club member Don Peterson lives on the island and will be our guide.  Don will show us all the island has to offer and those hidden gems. There was an article on Hornby Island in the February 2019 Close-Up. The lodging will be the same as before at the Hornby Island Dive lodge and did I mention the food??  It is all included (3 meals a day…) and is absolutely fabulous. The dates are Tuesday 21 to Friday 24 April 2020. The draft itinerary will be: Day One - travel from Victoria to Hornby Island to arrive at the lodge around 3-4 PM.  Orientation, social and dinner at the Lodge. A short evening shoot around Ford’s Cove. Day Two and Three - Over the two days we will:    Take at least one boat tour of about 3 hours to Flora Islet, a wildflower paradise. (This is dependent on weather and the level of interest in the group.)    Visit land-based areas to shoot the spring flowers, landscapes and seascapes    Have free time to explore Hornby on your own or in small groups. Day Four - a morning shoot and then return to Victoria either directly or to take in other interesting stops along the way. (The best time to shoot the Denman Eagles is in the morning.) Costs will be approximately $505 pp including taxes, lodging and all meals (did I mention the food??). [Note this is per person, not per room as with Tofino.] Transportation is at your cost, car-pooling will be facilitated. The boat trip
