High Tide at Staithes

By TrevBatWCC    
No chance of going into my favourite Staithes watering hole for my lunch and a pint that day… 😬
As my digital faffing about seems to go well, this is another idea on similar lines to my previous upload 'The Flood', with an exceptionally high tide lashing against the front of the Cod & Lobster. Luckily for the pub, the sea rarely gets anywhere near this high, though the inn was severely damaged in 1953, and it has been flooded several times previously. The sea has destroyed three earlier inns of the same name, on one occasion during a fierce storm in 1862.
The version shows the original image, and normal high tides don't even reach the bottom of the sea wall in front of the pub (it's about double the height of what you can see here). It was a high tide that day, and the shot was taken from across the harbour.
The sea, by the way, was taken in Whitby on a day when the sea was very rough and lashing against the sea wall at high tide, and taken from the West Pier.

Wow, great timing Trev - lovely memories of a day spent there whilst on holiday at Whitby.
My legs are still aching from the walk back to the car.

Who need a fishing boat when the fish is delivered fresh like this ?
Great comparison shots, Trev'.
It'll be nice when places like this are fully opened for business again.

Good to see that no cod or lobsters were harmed in the making of this image. Grin
Very realistic creation........ Hope the landlord doesn't see this image, he would have a heart attack 😫😵😩

Beautiful processing Trev, the lead is very impressive and very appealing name for a pub .


Two excellent images Trev. I especially like the lead.
Your faffing really paid off. That’s a great image.

The landlord needs to be wary - he'll be accused of watering down his beer if he isn't careful!

More wonderful faffing, Trev, when I saw it without reading the write-up thought it was for real! What’s next? Maybe sunshine in a dark place where it wasn’t originally, symbolic of our times? You’re the faffing expert on epz, always enjoy your uploads! 😀
