A popular location on epz, and many have done it before me, but this was my first photographic shoot at Whitby and of course I had to do the pier. Taken on sunday evening in the company of John, a great way to end a great day.

As always Thanks for Looking, apologies for my lack of activity on the site, migraine yesterday, and have to go out today, but will catch up soon hopefully.

An excellent shot, Chat. The sky is awesome and I particularly like your use of muted colours, emphasizing the bleakness of this view.

Brilliant.
This is a super shot and you battled against the chill wind at the end of what had been a long day, to get this shot in the can, and Boy oh Boy! did you bag it? Perfect light and mood. Great detail and super handling of the colours and tones.
An even great way to end a fabulous day.
A wall hanger if ever there was to grace anyones wall.

Well done Chant. you so richly deserve this accolade. Now, more of the same please. I know you can do it.
