    Although taken a couple of years ago it's still one of my favourites. A stormy August evening in Whitby, North Yorkshire, England.

    With good reason. It's wonderful. I'd love to have a shot like this. The light, the mist hugging the water and the hills are all great. And the pop of red in that flag. Great shot and welcome to the forums!

    Thanks for the warm welcome & positive feedback, much appreciated.

    For anyone knowing the town, the photo was taken from the east side, just past Fortune's Kipper House & overlooking the harbour. The camera used was my first digital, a Fuji FinePix 2800 zoom. The image quality with that little camera was superb, possibly better than the S602 I replaced it with.
    Ironically, the red flag denotes dangerous weather conditions & forbidding swimming in the sea. Earlier that same day, a German tourist ignored the warnings & lost his life swimming off Sandsend.
    Many thanks again everyone.

    No need to ask people to be gentle with you when you post a photo this good.... Despite living in England for 6 years, I never made it to Yorkshire. It's an area I'd love to visit someday.
