Whitby #2


It feels like a lifetime ago since I went to Whitby with one of my children whom hadn’t seen for 11 months due to Covid.

It was a beautiful day and of course I took my new Lee filter on it’s first outing with me and it didn’t disappoint. I bought Lee Filter seven5 with a soft graduated filter. I love the soft gradient and how it filters out the bright light.

The weather has changed so much in a few weeks and I’m now debating to put the heating on in the house!

Hope you like these few images that I have put on. I’m looking forward to going to see an exhibition this weekend.


The exhibition is ‘Pictures of the Floating World: Japanese Ukiyo-e Prints’ that will feature prints by prominent Ukiyo-e artists such as Utagawa Hiroshige, along with works by those influenced by Japanese art, such as public favourites Albert Moore and Walter Greaves. Ukiyo-e referring to the transitory nature of life.

  1. Beautiful photos of Whitby – I especially like the composition of that last one. The exhibition sounds interesting. Isn’t it great that we can go to such things again after a period that seemed devoid of culture apart from what could be found on TV?

    1. Thank you very much, I love that one and how it turned out, although I have used Photoshop to pop the red a wee bit.
      Yes looking forward to seeing it and yes better to see things in person rather than the TV. Must admit I haven’t watched it since May!
