    Great shots

    The last time I went to Whitby was with the school - 50 years ago - there was a "kids camp" at Staithes, just up the coast and we had a "day out" in Whitby

    all I remember was the "Scots Porridge Oats" served with salt

    Thanks for the memories

    Richie, thanks for these. Even though I've never been to Whitby, I certainly appreciate its beauty from your photos. That's a fantastic view you had in the last one!

    By the way, I don't know that you've ever been welcomed to the board, but we're glad to have you! Stop by the Welcomes and Introductions forum when you have a chance.:flowers_2:

    great shots.... I'm always amazed by the huge tidal change
    over there. Here in Florida it runs around 2 - 3 feet.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. All were shot with the 14-45 except for the 2nd one which was with the Voigtlander 75mm.

    I've been to Whitby too, lovely old place, lost in time. I especially like the 1st and 4th images. Nice work.

    Love your post!!! It brings back so many happy memories from when I was young. I was born in North Yorkshire and most of my family is from up there.
    My parents moved down to the Midlands when I was a couple of years old but we always went back up North for the holidays!!!
    I can still remember hearing the fog horn at night when we stayed in Whitby more than 30 years ago.......

    I used to get taken on many a day trip to Whitby and Robin Hoods bay as a kid.
    Now if I show these pictures to SWMBO I'm sure shell want to visit in September
