January started as January’s always do with us. Holiday time. We prefer to work over Christmas and New Year, its generally quite and makes a nice change from the usual stress of work
Last year we headed to Southwold, this year we decided to stop in Whitby at the loverly White Linen Guest House. Because it was there least busy time we got a discount of the room rate and once we arrived we also got a free room upgrade, Nice!
A part from a holiday the other reason was to take a lot of photographs. Its a very beautiful area and I always come away with lots of great shots.
As always when were in North Yorkshire we always take the opportunity to go walking. This time we took the coast route which gave us some great views of the Abbey.
While the temperature was bitterly cold, we were met each morning with clear blue sky.
After a days hiking or photography we ended the day in cafe, eating hot soup and drinking hot fresh coffee.
Dragging around lots of camera’s and lens is hard work, and on a poor day, when you get home cold and exhausted with no results it can be demoralising. Luckily at the end of each day I found I had captured some great results.
When it comes to photography I am a big believer in planning and pre-visualisation, but after one of our walks I had some great luck with the moon rising over Whitby Abbey at just the right point. I wish I could tell you it was all planned but no, it was just pure luck!
I think you will agree as a photography trip it was a great success and I achieved some memorable images.
As always the holiday was far to short. Once back it was into the old routine of work. We had one last treat in the month, a trip to the cinema, to watch Underworld 3.
