On behalf of the board of Orasis Photo Club, we would like to thank you all for your support and for being a part of our first complete and incredible photographic year as a club.
We are very proud to announce that 2016 brought 103 members to Orasis Photo Club! Throughout the year we were fortunate to receive their help, which also included financial help to purchase the new frames which will be used to display member gallery photos as well as competition photos.
Stay tuned as 2017 will be another full year with suprises!
Wishing you a very merry Christmas and all the best for the new year ahead!
One of the many beautiful attractions in Cyprus is the Salt Lake in Larnaca. Among it's picturesque beauty also lies the Hala Sultan Tekke, one of the holiest shines within Ottoman Islam. It is a Special Protected area under the Barcelona Convention and an important Bird Area, boasting 85 species of water birds which use this migratory passage through Cyprus as a feeding and breeding area.
On the 20th December, members of Orasis Photo Club decended to the Salt Lake to take photos of the sunset , learning at the same time different techniques to maje their photos more dramatic, as well as putting into place the composition techniques they learnt throughout 2016.
