A Moonlit Night At Staithes

A Moonlit Night At Staithes

Staithes Village, A View From Cowbar Nab

A beautiful sunset faded through the blues of twilight leaving a stunning calm moonlit night in Staithes.

I started my 4 hour photography session on top of Cowbar nab. After some photographs of the village as a whole I then looked out to sea and saw the light on the water from the MPI Resolution Support vessel which is working on the Boulby Potash outfall pipe

The MPI resolution is the big boat which is working on the potash outfall at staithes. You can see the outfall bouy just to the right of the boat. In the foreground are 2 rock anglers fishing the scars at Staithes. I think the place they are fishing may be called “Street Light Gully” But as Staithes wasnt an area I focussed on when fishing, Im not entirely certain.

Anyway, the position of the 2 lights shows you how dedicated local rock anglers are to their sport. To the untrained eye it may look like they have been cut off by the tide, but these boys will know to the second just how long they can stay out there safely. The fish normally have a bad habit of turning up just as you have to leave your mark as well which can be massively frustrating.

Photographs Of Staithes Harbour And Staithes Beck

As the light fell away I headed into the village and down to the beck. I had long planned to get down in the water and see what photographs I could come up with. The almost full moon lit up the becksides beautifully and helped the camera perform well in the low light. This Fuji XT2 does perform very well in low light and it only requires a very small amount of light to pick details out even in the most shaded corners. The following video shows the scene as I was taking photographs in and around the beck area.

The first image I took is below. This was taken facing down the beck towards Cowbar Cottages and lifeboat station. Although it was a lovely warm and still evening, the water in the beck was still very cold and it was difficult to stay in there for any length of time despite wearing wellies and really thick socks.

Having a walk up the beck I stopped to take photographs at a couple of locations. The scenes are beautiful but very difficult with the bright streets likes causing problems and casting lots of light into areas of the photograph where they aren’t really needed. I think it would be awesome to photograph Staithes at night under a powercut/blackout. Not that would be amazing.

Stepping Stones In Staithes Beck

Higher up The Beck you come to a set of Stepping Stones which lead to a fotpath taking you from Staithes village upto the cliff tops at Cowbar and a place named on a rotting signpost as “Hawkness”. I would imagine this name comes from the existence of Peregrine Falcons which reside on the cliffs around Staithes and Cowbar Villages.
