Whitby 'Choccie Box' Style 3/14

There is quite a long pier leading out to the two seperate piers that make up the entrance to the harbour at Whitby, you will see more of this as the series progresses.

 

Whitby is a town and civil parish in the Scarborough borough of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated 47 miles (76 km) from York, at the mouth of the River Esk and spreads up the steep sides of the narrow valley carved out by the river's course. At this point the coast curves round, so the town faces more north than east. According to the 2001 UK census, Whitby parish had a population of 13,594.

Hi Brian, Nice photo. I like the angle at which you took this photo makes it very interesting. Frances
Brian Walbey: Yes I felt it was better at this angle than straight down the middle. Thanks Frances.

Condition of the lamp suggests it is well loved by the gull, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Not just that gull but all the many others that reside at Whitby Ray.
Nice composition, Brian, I like how much sky you got in the shot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. I got down a bit so the lamp standards were set against the sky.

A very vertical composition Brian
Brian Walbey: It worked better getting low down and accenting the vertical I felt Chris.
a nice pier for a walk
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Chantal.

WOW. Lots to see in this image, Brian. Looks like there are at least 3 lighthouses for the price of one!?!
Brian Walbey: There are three lighthouses and the tower Ginnie, you will get a more clear view of all three on Sunday if you get chance to look in.
Have not been to Whitby in ages, so many places to go to smile
Brian Walbey: Well worth another visit John, we will definitely return, and yes, there is a lot to see both in the town and round about.
I'm feeling vertically challenged ... nice one Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Richard.

I'd love to see the sea crashing over the pier! I expect the sea was like the proverbial millpond when you took this.
Brian Walbey: yes it was fairly calm all the time we were there Alan. I wouldn't fancy standing on one of those piers in rough weather that's for sure.

Great composition to get the lighthouses and posts all together smile,
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, there is what I think is an even better composition coming up on Sunday.
I like the POV and glad a gull obliged you with it's presence.
Brian Walbey: Yes it felt right to go low down for this shot Janet. There are gulls everywhere at Whitby.
You have managed to get a different take on this much photographed harbour Brian. well done sir!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I am showing more of the harbour proper next week.
Nice choccy stuff indeed, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.

Looks first class for a promenade in the sunshine Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is quite pleasant Mike, I take it you are perhaps not familiar with Whitby.

You've captured a very obliging seagull. I'd have been tempted to crop it to portrait and get rid of the extraneous detail on the left and move the right hand margin in a bit - a bit too much going on for me.
Brian Walbey: I won't argue with that Ingrid, rally it was a "holidaymaker" shot more than anything, plus I think, by then, Maureen was getting a bit tired of waiting for me taking shots, I'd been doing so for most of the day!!
This really is a substantial pier, Brian, and you've managed to capture the size of it very well, indeed. My eye is drawn to that elaborate looking lamp stand in the foreground; it's a beauty.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is the western wall of the harbour which is to the right in the picture. They are fine lamps aren't they.
