When I was asked to join my friends for photo trip in December, I have to admit, I was excited. Destination was Anglesey, an island off the north west coast of Wales.
This year’s december was very wet, South part of Wales was flooded and it was raining when we set off from Nottingham. Our main goal was to photograph sunset on Black Point, especially Penmon Lighthouse on the coast .
It’s more than a year , since I become a member of Nottingham Outlaws photographic society. When I joined last year, I was told that every year there is photo trip organised by the club. This time destination was Morecambe.
Morecambe as location was not very inspiring and we took to the Lake District or the North York moors for photo inspiration, so in all the location was reasonably central.
Although main focus for this trip was nearby bay called Saltwick Bay, I ‘ll call this post Whitby. Just because I love this town…
Whitby is a seaside town in North Yorkshire. Place known for not only for its beauty, but also because of Captain Cook . The town has a strong literary tradition and can even be said that the earliest English literature comes from Whitby as Cædmon, the first known Anglo Saxon poet was a monk at the order that used Whitby Abbey during the abbacy of St. Hilda (657–680).Part of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula was set in Whitby, incorporating pieces of local folklore, including the beaching of the Russian ship Dmitri. Stoker discovered the name “Dracula” at the old public library …. but enough history.
