Low tide

Taken from the swing bridge this shows Whitby west harbourside on a cold autumn Saturday morning. An enlargement only just reveals the whalebone arch and the Cook statue top centre. The high grassy area is known locally as Spion Kop after a Boer War battle in which the British came off quite badly. It overlooks the equally inappropriately-named Khyber Pass.

  1. It looks very pretty there. Of course, I can't feel the cold in the photo.
