Whitby 'Choccie Box' Style 7/14

The piers and entrance to Whitby harbour are the subject of many photos one sees from time to time, and indeed I took some of those familiar shots myself.

 

I somehow preferred this one which also includes one of the old unloading docks further into the harbour, and the tall, weathered, column that I featured during the week.  I was lucky however to catch that yacht on its way past the entrance to the harbour.

 

Tourism and fishing now form the mainstay of the town's economy.  There are rail and bus links to the rest of North Yorkshire and North East England.  Whitby has featured in literary works, television and cinema; most famously in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula.

Whitby is an interesting place to visit Brian, and there are some fine fish and chip restaurants there as well. The last time I was there was last October for the NYMR 1940s weekend, just missed the Goth weekend at Whitby though. I do like the harbour, a different view here.
Brian Walbey: Yes we like Whitby Les, I guess we will return again soon. I tried to take a few different shots of the harbour and felt this was one of them.
Love the layers in this view.
Brian Walbey: Yes that was one reason I took it like this John, I have seen a lot of shots without the quay in the foreground.

Nice!

I really like the tenacious weeds on the sides of the pier, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. Weeds will grow anywhere, no doubt these are of the sea type.
There are many things to look at in this- and that yacht is one of them- great timing!
Brian Walbey: Yes there are Elizabeth, and I think without the yacht it would seem a bit empty.
A nice view of the harbour Brian. The posing seagull and passing yacht are nice touches
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. This is a sort of alternative shot to those that Tim, (if you remember him,) used to post using long shutter speeds of these ingredients.
Perfect timing with the sailboat.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, it would have seemed a bit empty without that I feel, but a lucky chance really.
Good gap
Brian Walbey: And luck that a yacht came by just then.
let's sail out to sea
Brian Walbey: Well I wouldn't mind with it calm like that perhaps, mind you I'm not a good swimmer, so perhaps not Chantal.
Brian, Great composition and the angle at which it was taken makes it look like a maze. The yacht going by is an incredible catch smile frances
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances, that yacht was a real bonus.
Interesting the number of lights they seem to have about the place!
Brian Walbey: They are all to do with the walls either side of the entrance to the harbour Tom.

The composition is super Brian and great view point smile
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Linda.
Excellent timing catching the yacht in the background. I think it really makes this shot spectacular! grin
Brian Walbey: Yes the yacht is a bonus, without it I think it would be just another shot of Whitby harbour.
