The famous wreckage of the Admiral Von Tromp on Saltwick Bay early one morning with the tide out.
For my second picture of the week in 2014, I’ve decided to post an image realting to the wet weather the country has been experiencing lately with no let up for the folks around the West coast of Britain. This was taken at Sandsend near Whitby, North Yorkshire and is notorious for its big waves of the incoming tide that crash against the sea wall in the village.
For 2014 I’ve decided to upload my picture of the week from my archive of work based on an event in the week. To kick off with week one of 2014, I bring you an apt event titled “New Year, New Life”. This image was captured whilst on holiday on a cottage attached to a farm in North Yorkshire. In the field adjacent I saw a new calf being born without any assistance by man. It was a great spectacle and so pleased I was able to capture the moment. The photo sees the calf less than an hour old and already it is on its feet with its loving mother.
Wow it’s like the height of summer but at the end of September. So, how apt, we should be in Scarborough with lots of folk flocking to the beach. A real bonus for the traders of the town. We spoke to one trader who said it hadn’t been this hot since April!! The rest of the week promises more of the same.
Today I’ve swapped the hussle and bussle of my Monday morning commute for a morning photography in Robin Hood’s Bay. On the shoreline by 6.10am waiting for the sun to rise at around 7am. It’s dark when I arrive and the tide is up but on it’s way out. Looking for composition in the dark is tricky. But as the light improves and the tide receeds it’s looking good. The sunlight was brief but enough and, hopefully, managed to get some nice shots. I used my new circular polariser for the first time today and certainly helped with the water reflections and shadow. Back again tomorrow? Who can tell. Only the light can tell.
