Where Were Ya?

By DaveMead  
Hi Folks,
I've always avoided Saltwick Bay on the North Yorkshire coast mainly because of the stories of photographers stood ten deep waiting to take the same image of the wreck and/or nab and the sunset. However, Scotty (stephenscott), rang me yesterday suggesting we go there and I, with some trepidation, agreed. The torrential downpour that greeted us was not a good sign but the double rainbow definitely was. We ventured onto the beach to find the tide had not yet cleared the rocks so it was a slightly shaky climb to the nab. However, when we got there, the sun broke through which culminated in a lovely sunset. The most surprising thing of all.............not another soul. WHERE WERE YA?
Please view the Large Version to see the crazy cormorant and thanks for all the c & c's for 'Black Clouds II', my first RC for a while so I'm well chuffed.
Have a great evening.

P.S. I almost forgot, a big, big thanks to Scotty for a really great evening, let's do it again soon!
