A little Whitby night view

A first excursion into night-time photography which demonstrates how difficult it is to keep the camera steady without a tripod . This is Whitby from the east side, near the bottom of the 199 steps and looking over the harbour. It's no wonder it's such a popular destination; the town itself has many attractions and then there is so much to see and do nearby: Scarborough, Robin Hoods Bay,  Goathland for Heartbeat and Harry Potter fans, the North Yorkshire Moors centre at Danby, great walking, the Roman road, Pickering - endless!

But every silver lining has a dark cloud: the popularity of the town has led to a rise in house prices in recent years as the demand for holiday lets has intensified, making it difficult for local first-time buyers to get onto the property ladder.
