The Pier

By dp    
And before anyone says anything my conclusion is that the lighthouse is leaning slightly to the right. The camera is straight according to the spirit level in the back and the horizon is straight according to photoshop!
Went down to the pier at Whitby when it was raining under an umbrella but it was one of those evenings where it was pretty obvious it wasnt set in. Sure enough the rain disappeared about 30 minutes before sunset which left the pier itself reflective and a rather nice sky above. Got a few keepers from here. Thanks for getting this far, hope you enjoy the image.

Got a proper wonk on that Lighthouse mate. Can't say I noticed it that much when I was there, but looking through my shots I can see it from this angle more too!!!

Probably been blown about over the years Paul but I was confused by it at first. Hope things are ok at home mate, tough time.
