Award Shortlist   

Yorkshire's coast

By oll1e
Hi Folks ,
thanks very much for your comments on my upload yesterday of whitby ,and was really pleased to see some of you liked it Smile,as i was thinking it would die on here.Smile
I took this on a really strange day (weather wise) ,i arrived here and was greeted to this strange coloured sky and very strong winds, in less than half an hour the sky had turned jet black ,wind had gone off the scale and i was under attack from hailstones the size of marbles .I didn't stick around
ps the castle in the distance is scarborough and also if you think the horizon is out its not .That is filey headland in the far background tapering down Smile
