Whitby Reflections

It was such a lovely day on Saturday that we decided to go to Whitby - and so did the rest of the North East of England it seemed.  I guess everybody was suffering from cabin fever after all the wet and windy weather.  Remembering that it was still early January we were very surprised to find that three of the best fish and chip restaurants had queues outside at 1.45 pm!  Worth the wait though as they do some very good fish and chips in Whitby.

Just a couple of photos which I thought worth keeping.  The fishermen on the pier made me laugh - obviously they were taking no notice of the 'No Fishing' sign.

Tangled Trees

In Tuscany we found this glade of quite spindly trees covered in yellow lichens.  It was a challenge to find a good composition.

Tuscany Part 2

Because of the lack of good light more time than expected was spent in the hilltop villages pointing the lens at sculptures and even inside a very dark chapel which gave me the chance to use HDR (always trying to avoid the picture looking too grungy of course!).
