With a months worth of rain forecast to fall in just a couple of days I decided to get out for a few hours with the camera before the bad weather arrived.

I had a quick look on the moors for Barn Owls but couldn’t find any that were active so I headed over to the coast at Hummersea. I had one particular shot in mind but the conditions weren’t quite right so I left with just a reference shot for a future image that should work under the right conditions.

I took the short drive down the road to Boulby and by the time I got there, the conditions had come right for the shot back at Hummersea. Rather than running about like a blue assed fly I decided to stick it out on the cliff top at Boulby before heading down the coast back towards Whitby.

At Boulby, the late evening sun, now setting in the west behind me was lighting up the cliffs at Staithes, which is just what I wanted. Its always a spectacular scene when the last sunlight of the day works its magic on the boulder clay and Sandstone cliffs of The Yorkshire Coast.

As I drove back to Whitby I was getting tired and felt like I should head straight home. The night had been pretty average in terms of photography but as I drove through Sandsend the sky to the north and west of the village was just too nice to miss so I made a stop of about 60 minutes to take some twilight shots of the village.

I think of all the photographs I take, the twilight shots are usually my favourite. There really is something very special about The Whitby area in midsummer. The light in The Northern sky seems to linger for hours and its a beautiful time of day to wander about and immerse yourself in The Beauty Of The Yorkshire Coast.
