Eastern Promise ...

By sut68      
I've never ventured over to the East Pier at Whitby before, preferring to stick to the lovely curved boards of the West Pier, but I had decided on this trip to try to capture some different angles wherever possible.

MrsS and myself had visited the evening before, but the light wasn't playing ball due to a low cloud bank, but I took a few shots none-the-less for a recce and had settled on this composition for a long exposure. The following evening I headed back on my own [MrsS wanted to chill] only for the light to disappear as soon as my camera was atop of the tripod ... now it was time to play the waiting game.

About an hour and a half passed and I had seem numerous fishermen, joggers and general tourists come and go and I am sure they were wondering what I was waiting for, they probably would have twigged when the light broke and saw the smile on my face ... patience rewarded, nice when that happens Smile

Lee 0.6 ND Grad and the BIG Stopper used on this one.

Fran's dads funeral tomorrow - not looking forward to it, but the thought of the family celebrating his life puts a smile on my face - he was a real one off. Sleep well 'cocker' Smile

Cheers for now,

Great location indeed Yung, highly recommended. As Whitby faces North, the sun rises and sets over the sea during the summer, but only for a few days!!!

Sorry to hear of Frans dad's death Paul. My thoughts will be with you guys. I think you are spot on in terms of celebrating life...

Take it easy.

Good to get a rather more unusual view, been on here a few times though not nailed it like this one. There was a socking great crane on this side last time I was there Sad

Shame Martin, was the crane lowering the new cross-way in to place on the West Pier?

Nice one, every thing falls into place well
Never done that side myself, but seeing this I think I will have to give it a blast next time I'm up there

Cheers Dave, it's a little harder to get successful compositions from, but if the conditions fall into place it feels more rewarding on this side Smile

They say that patience has its reward and certainly in this instance you were properly rewarded. It's a very good image indeed, and worthy of many more votes. Here's mine....
