Its almost a couple of years now since I photographed the sailing ship Lord Nelson as it cruised into Whitby Harbour early one morning.

Thankfully I got the chance to photograph it again this morning as it laid at anchor off The Yorkshire Coast at Sandsend. Normally I have my eye on the coast most nights, just in case something interesting happens, but last night I had been walking inland at Sleights so hadn’t seen the boat arrive.

Thankfully a friend on Facebook gave me the heads up on the boat off Whitby. Those who know me well will tell you I really am not a morning person. But if the need arises I don’t mind setting the alarm clock and forcing myself from slumber land at silly o’clock. After only 3 hours sleep I was up at 5, a quick cup of coffee then down to Sandsend.

I had two venues in mind. I was either going to head to the top end of the Valley at Sandsend and Photograph the Valley with the boat near the tunnel. Or I was going to head up onto the cliffs and try catch the boat with a Giant sun behind it.

I opted for the cliffs and tried to guess exactly where the sun would rise. I wasn’t far wrong as the predawn light gave a big clue as to exactly where the sun would come up. I primarily shot a wider angle of the boat, cliffs and sunrise. I felt it important to capture some cliff as without it you never get a real feel of where the photograph was taken from.

After the initial shots I moved about a bit, capturing the boat with a giant sun behind it, then down onto Sandsend beach for some more shots with local foreground (Always important I feel otherwise it could just be a photograph taken anywhere in the world.

    I was actually on the Lord Nelson when you took these amazing photos as one of the volunteer crew I am partially sighted but with modern cameras are still able to continue to enjoy my hobby Your photos are fantastic and an inspiration for me I tried to get some sunsets from the boat looking towards Whitby but after a late watch didn’t get to manage sunrises! Thank you

    Hi Karen, Many thanks for getting in touch. Im so pleased that despite your vision you are still able to continue to do the thing you love. Its always inspirational to hear of people triumphing against adversity.

    I hope you read my reply, and maybe you could answer me a question. I know The Lord Nelson has been into Whitby Harbour a couple of times in the past. I was wondering if you knew why the ship chose to anchor off Whitby for the night, was there any special reason for that ??

    Best wishes – Glenn

    Hi Glenn, I too was on-board the Lord Nelson on the night this photograph was taken. The Lord Nelson is currently on a round trip of Great Britain, sponsored by Barclays. We were on leg 2, going from Great Yarmouth to Sunderland. We made such good progress that we were able to anchor up and appreciate the gorgeous coastline of Whitby.
    The photographs are stunning x

      Oh Wow, round Britain, that sounds amazing. I bet thats a fantastic experience. Although I love The Yorkshire Coast, I would love to sail around The North West Of Scotland And The Hebrides. The coastline and the mountains are simply stunning up there.

    Hi Glen,

    Hi Glen, love your photos. I too was on the Lord Nelson as you took these photos. As the sun made an appearance I was on the Bridge and in the Chart Room recording our position as I was informed by our fellow Watchmen. Later in the day we got some sails up and several Voyage Crew climbed aloft. As it was Palm Sunday we held a short Service lead by a blind Vicar with the singing lead by a blind guitarist. It was very moving. A wonderful experience shared with inspirational disabled people. Well done Barclays Round Britain Voyage.
