West Pier, Whitby

By TrevBatWCC    
Set off for a walk along the West Beach first thing after breakfast – well, around 9:00 am! This is about as far out as the tide goes at Whitby, so you can walk out to this cluster of rocks by the end of the West Pier, almost to the pier’s extension. Many images of the West Pier are taken from on the pier itself, so went for a different angle of it.
The pier was built in 1632, but fell into disrepair and was almost wholly rebuilt in 1814, the extension being added in 1912. The old stone lighthouse was completed in 1831.

Looks a little better seen large if you have the time.

I have never seen the pier from this viewpoint, Trev, so that alone makes the shot interesting. A very nice composition and so very attractively processed and presented.
