A Whole Week of Whitby

2 May 2016 11:03AM   Views : 893 Unique : 537

We've been travelling to the Whitby Goth weekends for a while and decided it would be great to rent a cottage for the whole week. It was much better than rushing over and rushing back in the day, although we did miss the camaraderie of the ADAPS coach trip. Incredibly, we ran into no other ADAPS members all day, so Whitby clearly swallows up a lot of people very easily. It was a great day on the Saturday, the Sunday we were there again and later in the week we dropped in, including an incredible sunny early morning or two. We were staying just three miles outside of Whitby and that was perfect.

The week went by in full communication with the world, thanks to mobile internet and also the 4G hotspot on our iPhones. Even on 3G+ I was getting almost 8 Mbps at times, which is more than good enough to keep in touch. Whatever did we do before the internet?

Here's some samples of the week's images, mainly shot on the Pentax K-5 with 18-135mm WR lens. I did shoot some other images with other lenses, but that will have to wait for the reviews in a couple of days. Sue was getting to grips with her new K-3 and is just settled in with it now and producing some fantastic images. She should start a blog....










We're quite fond of Whitby these days, so I think we'll do this again. It may or may not be the same cottage, but staying so close definitely worked.
