Whitby

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.

As I mentioned before, main target for this trip was Saltwick Bay with famous Black Nab and old wreck of Admiral Von Tromp.We set off from Nottingham very early and reached Whitby with enough time to go down to port and take some shots of Whitby pier. It was great decision and i did few long exposures.Then we went to see Black Nab. Tide was high and on the sky heavy clouds. Sunrise did not happen as I was imaging it , but it was still great. Saltwick Bay is great location and east coast is well worth to visit….
