Staithes - Darkness descends

By YorkshireSam
A multi frame stitched panorama that was a long time in the planning and capturing since I wanted the full moon in the scene. On several visits the cloud out at sea blocked the moon until such time as it was too dark to take the shot.

Because the timing to have all the elements you see here was so finite and because I failed so often before this I almost gave up trying but as they say "if at first ...."

Patience and planning have paid off handsomely, Sam: an excellent night time shot of this photogenic wee town, the panorama so well stitched and here showing a whole sweep across the river and the houses on either side.
I have seen a not dissimilar view during the day but not at night and certainly not with the moon in frame.
Very well done.

Patience paid off, the moon in the still blue sky coupled with the artificial lighting gives lots of interest. The moon gives a 'smuggler's cove' feel I think! Smile

Well worth the wait, the multi-frame puts you right there in the image again. Fine work again, Sam.
