Evening in Whitby

By digicammad  
We had a spur of the moment trip to Whitby Friday and Saturday and were rewarded with some decent light. I was amazed at how long the light lasts there, it seemed to go on for hours (no wonder Northscape use it so often). Every time the sun appeared from behind yet another bank of cloud everything took on a glorious glow.

Hope you like it. Thanks for looking, all comments welcome, good or bad.

lol Paul, no we actually didn't walk up the steps and it really was spur of the moment. We booked on Thursday and I think we must have got the last room available anywhere in Whitby!

Ian, this is a great shot.

Well saturated colours, pin sharp detail, lots of interest, clouds are dramatic, good sky colours.

A well deserved HC, a RC will come no doubt, excellent work.
