A bit of a smokey affair today in Staithes but it adds a little atmosphere.

Beautiful panorama of a very interesting city on the side of a hill. It looks like a great place for an urban hike. Like.

A stunning image of this charming and photogenic village. There is so much detail. You have done it justice. L &F. Regards Derek

Guy, this tiny hamlet is probably as far from City status as possible so I had to chuckle . As for a hike then yes that is possible being all uphill and downhill is stretches the muscles nicely and gives the lungs a work out for sure. My preference is to just sit above watching the view below followed by a nice cup of tea and a crab sandwich. Many thanks !

Thnx A

Not as many as the smoke suggests Ian with the majority of residences being holiday cottages and/or second homes for the well off. Somewhat better of than neighbouring Runswick Bay however which only has 7 permanent residents. It's always a good thing to hear I've done the place justice with my captures of it Derek so big smile here right now :o).

Cheers one and all. Sam :o)

Oh aye, where did tha nick a crab sarnie from then lad;-)) I think that would be my choice ...sitting on top!! These are two grand shots Sam, Steers looks lovely with the lights on, (Joan says so too) I do prefer this one though,it just has a little more sharpness about it, obviously the low light and camera settings have a lot to do with it. That doesn't take anything away from the other shot mate,it does look nice at twilight.

I was just dreaming of the crab sarnie mate, I avent the brass ti afford sich as that. Good to hear Joan likes t'other version but I'm with you in so much as the detail is better here having had more light. The trouble is with big panos when the light is falling as in the later shot is the amount of time it takes, when each frame is half a minute a heck of a lot has changed from start to finish.

Glad you like it mate , cheers :o)
