With stout tower and crenellated stone walls, St. Mary's Church, Whitby stands like a fortress against the elements on a windswept clifftop. The church is reached by 199 stone steps up from town. The large churchyard is filled with weathered tombstones and monuments to sailors, fishermen, Royal Navy seamen and lifeboatmen.

Thanks for all your comments on my last - all read and inwardly digested, and greatly appreciated. I have a particular fondness for forest/tree images but thought it time for a change (I also like churches!).

Thought for the day - "Unless you change direction you will end up where you are going"

Have a good day, peeps,

Dave

Very good choice for your foreground interest, that stone is so weathered, an excellent image. Carole

Great treatment on the head stones and church. Here we use marble. Like your composition with weathered one in the foreground. Good work. WesternRed.

Hi Dave excellent composition, and the tones are awesome, depth of field with every thing pin sharp spot on, I think this is the dead centre of town.

Such a beautifully composed image here. I love Whitby. I remember sitting on a low wall when I was 10. Eating fish and chips and watching the gulls.

A view that I know well, but portrait format tells its own story, it creates a direct link between the church and the graves. Excellent.
