Photographs from the weekend before last when we went to Scarborough to celebrate my cousin's 70th birthday with him and his family. We stayed at a lovely, small hotel on the North bay. I was all prepared to catch the dawn over the sea by racing out, camera in hand with my jeans over my PJ's at sunrise, only to find that you have to be on the South Bay to get those shots. DRAT! I did my best in ever changing light conditions, firing into the direction of the dawn that was lurking behind buildings for many of the shots. I did a second dash outside when there was actually a brief period of bright sunlight as in Version 1. It was very early and the sky really was that colour. V's 3 & 13 were taken through the bedroom window, V12 has a watercolour effect applied.

It is a very long time since I lived on the North East Coast and I had forgotten about the ferocious winds that whistle off the sea, across the beach and up the cliffs bringing stinging sand and dust with them. Garrath's Jeep, my hair and some of the shots bear testimony to the dust storms, but at least there was NO SNOW.

We took a walk along to the castle later by which time the sun had retired behind cloud and I got a few more shots. There is some lovely Victorian architecture in Scarborough, along with the castle, beaches and cliffs. We will undoubtedly go again but I will ask Scarborough Council to post Whistling Wind warnings before we do!

Thanks for looking and I hope that you enjoy at least some of them.

V 1 really stands out with the grey sky behind the sunlit terrace.

A wonderful set of pictures.. 1,3,4 and 15 would be my personal favourites-- though they are all dramatic and captivating. The architecture in 1 is so similar to that of the Marine Parade in Saltburn, just down the road (though of course Saltburn isn't nearly as grand). Don't know why everyone complained about the cold--- it's not cold around there, just bracing! Congratulations on a spectacular group of images.
