photoblog image Runswick Bay 1/5

Runswick Bay 1/5

It's all "chocolate box", whatever that is, this week from start to finish.

 

During our early May holiday in Whitby we spent some time at one of the most popular small villages on the North Yorkshire coast, Runswick Bay.  Being in school term time we had the place almost to ourselves apart from a few other "elderly" and retired couples. 

 

As you will see this week it is a photographers paradise, the only way to reach those houses and cottages above the shoreline is by narrow pathways running between them.

 

This is my presentation in my camera clubs annual "Postcard Challenge" which is judged by the members.  It took second place which was very pleasing.

 

If you want a laugh the first three in the "Fun Class" are here.

Love the box, Brian, but feel the inserts detract slightly from the overall.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. Well it was a postcard competition with a minimum of three images included on the postcard, like you might buy on holiday, in the rules. The main idea is to get lesser experienced club members learning how to combine two or more images into one presentation, several who said they could never do that have produced some good "cards" over recent years.
It's a great postcard though! I look forward to seeing more of the charming place!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, and you will see more during the week.

I would visit there in a New York minute, Brian! My kind of chocolate-box place (whatever that it).
Brian Walbey: We really love this place Ginnie, I know you and Astrid would really enjoy exploring it, and there is a fine cafe for lunch after a mornings shooting. Sadly it is many miles, in English terms, from where you are staying at Chris's home.

I've never even heard of this place Brian but it looks absolutely charming. Certain photographers from Droitwich Spa could take a leaf out of your book!
Brian Walbey: Lol, it wouldn't surprise me if Lord Clent wasn't aware of this lovely little village just north of Whitby. We prefer it to Robin Hoods bay which is also nice of course.
Can't beat North Yorkshire, I long to return to this coast, you certainly had the weather,unlike our current Summer experience.
Brian Walbey: WE hadn't been up that way for several years Martin and were so lucky with the weather that week in May.
Postcard perfection Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Bill, I suggested to Chris that you might know of this place, I gather you have been round that way from things you have written.
It's a wonderful postcard. Looks like a wonderful place to explore.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Mary, and yes, it is a beautiful little village.
like a vacation postcard
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chantal, that is the purpose of the competition in my club, it hopefully makes the lesser experienced members have a go at combining two or more shots into one image.

lovely looking place
Brian Walbey: It is a beautiful little village vintage.
Looks like a great place Brian
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little coastal village John, very photogenic.
Utterly charming village, Brian. Some very nice looking homes there, too, and they all seem to be positioned to have a spectacular view of the water.
Brian Walbey: It is a delightful little village Beverly, although I suspect it is less pleasant in the winter with high seas and strong winds all the way from cold northern regions.
An excellent postcard you have created Brian. Nicely bold and bright
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Janet.
Not a spot I've visited - looks worth the trip.
Brian Walbey: It is a delightful little place if the weather is kind Tom.
This a beautiful imaginative collage Brian.... great composition....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Peter.

Now this looks to be a fascinating place, Brian, and seen in idea weather. By 'eck, though, I bet it's grim int bad weather, though!
Brian Walbey: Yes I bet it is far from being hospitable in the middle of a winter storm Alan.

Looks like a pretty place. I read your reply to Ray's comment about having to combine 3 images, but I find the position of the top one very distracting!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little spot Ingrid, in fine weather. I agree about the top image, I would have preferred just the lower one but the rules called for three, still I got second place out of 15 odd entries so I'm satisfied with that.
