Steps & Shadows

By TrevBatWCC    
A bit brain-dead on titles again! Sad Everyone going up - or down, as I was here - takes photos on Whitby's 199 steps, but you always seem to get the view looking down. I shot a few looking both directions, and rather liked the zig-zag pattern of shadows being cast by the railings, especially when looking up. V3 is your bog standard shot looking down towards the harbour and West Pier.

Techie stuff: see Exif

The bog standard does take a lot of beating, it being such a breath taking scene, Trev, but what a good idea to try the view in reverse.
Makes my old legs weary just looking at itWink

Has to be V2 for composition Trev none of the lampost cropped, the shadows are so well defined, excellent capture!

Excellent variation on this scene. v2 for the greater depth and complete lamppost. I like the shadows, going from zig-zag to obliques (slashes) as you go up the steps. Classic Whitby, Trev.

Has to be V1 for me, love the way the steps disjoint the railings shadow, and all the space given to the steps looks good. I prefer this slightly different angle to V2 because you have more of the texture on the front of the steps.

I love these and appreciate the unusual nature of V1 and V2. I've climbed those steps a hundred or more times but never registered the shadow patterns before: usually I get all the way up without pausing but my eyes are probably shut most of the time Smile

Those steps look so innocuous but I bet they're the devil to get down.

One hundred and ninety eight steps I believe Trev and the view points great for when one gets out of breath and I say to my wife just going to take a photo luv ( not that I'm out of breath really )
Super shots love the shadows well taken and great pov Smile

V2 for me as it really shows the enormity of the task in climbing them, and I love the shadows.

Fine shots of the steps and shadows Trev,
but far too many for me to negotiate personally !!

Great to see the variation with those super shadows, Trev, but v3 does take some beating!

Those shadows really make v1 & 2, Trev. Those steps remind me of the ones we used to do circuit training on behind the rowing club in Southampton. Jog up and as fast as possible down. 20 times. I think there was only 50-ish though, not 199. That was after a 3 mile run round the local common as well!
