As darkness descends - Whitby

By YorkshireSam
I have tried over the years to avoid doing cliche shots and have managed for the mostpart but it seems we all succumb to doing them eventually which after all is why they are cliche I guess.
Anyway this is my take on a very frequently captured scene from part way up the 199 steps at Whitby. ... as often the case the link will take you to a Larger Version

Doesn't matter how cliched it might be, the light and op ours are always different.

in my book it doesnt matter a fig sam ,different light conditions etc ,everyones image is unique but i know what you are saying Smile
Excellent exposer, very well composed, taken just as the sky is on it's last light, very good detail and for me the lamp light makes a superb shot.

Thanks guys, I guess my initial notion re cliche is that I didn't want to be seen as copying others and what I often refer to as the sheep mentality, mostly because I like to be more individual as a rule but of course some scenes are just
so impossible to compose or capture in another beneficial way and so it makes sense to do what others have and I am just pleased to read the encouraging comments as a result. kind regards, Sam

Cheers John also for the user award, that is a pleasant surprise.
