Whitby Panorama

By TrevBatWCC    
Iíd always meant to take a trip up to the top of the old stone lighthouse on the West Pier, so actually got round to doing it this time whilst still in Whitby. The lighthouse was built in 1831 and stands 83 feet high and has 81 steps up to the top. It was replaced by the new West Pier Light in 1914, two years after the West Pier extension was added. Itís certainly worth the climb up, and offers a good view looking back along the pier and of Whitby. I had in mind this panorama, so four of the images I shot whilst up there were stitched together to make up todayís upload.

Must be seen large if you have the time!

Each image taken at:
1/125 sec, F11, 18mm, ISO 100
Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Elements 6, with some assistance from Topaz Adjust.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Like most panoramas, viewing 'large' is a must to really appreciate how much detail is captured here. You really have the whole of Whitby and its harbour and seafront 'stitched up' here so well, Trev. The image for someone who has never been there tells so much about the layout of the town. A very fascinating and interesting panorama, and so beautifully executed.
