A moment to savour------sun-up at Saltwick Nab

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Nowhere in England are the sunrises more spectacular than here in the Eastern coastal resort town of Whitby, especially during the summer months. This is entirely due to the northerly facing aspect of our coast-line.

" Mystic Angel "~~~~I greet you warmly _m-a and thank you kindly for your visit and YSL :) Sorry for the late response! The early morning clouds are a common feature along the east coast, especially during the summer months..Without them, this would be a very ordinary image!

Reiner Vogeley~~~~Hello and welcome Reiner, Of all the places on the English East coast, this is where the sun rises and sets on the sea in the height of summer when the days are almost 20 hours long..My home town, on the coast, is on a northerly facing promontory. Many thanks for the huge compliment and YSL

Kind regards to you both
