My first trip to Whitby this weekend as part of a surprise weekend away for a friend's 40th. We stayed in a fantastic place in Kirkbymoorside for two nights and spent a day in Whitby. Unfortunately, sunrise and sunset at 4:40am and 9:45pm were a little too early and late when combined with some birthday celebrations, but optimistically took my camera anyway.

I can see why it's the subject of so many amazing images and have every intention of getting back there, as you can see from the optimistically added '#1' appended to the title!

The weather was not kind on Saturday and there was precious little light but the sun did break out for a while as hinted by the flash of blue sky here, but by then, the dampness had extended beyond the clothes to the spirit and the brilliant fish and chips had started to settle. Despite the lack of light I liked this, took a little tweaking in post processing but less than I expected.

Let me know what you think.
