I really enjoy visiting Yorkshire. The people are generally friendly, especially so in the North, and it has great scenery. In this post I saw a funny Rabits at Work sign in Wharram Percy, we went to Flamborough Head which has a really photogenic windmill and lighthouse. We also visited the Yorkhire Moors not far from Goathland where we saw fields of heather and we finally visited Staithes where I took a couple photos with a Hasselblad.
Rabbits at work. This sign cracks me up. I was walking through the wolds with my mother’s dog and I saw this sign. Completely random but Yorkshire people have their own sense of humour.
Scarecrow. I can’t remember which town this was in but we visited some castle ruins and saw this completely un-scary scarecrow in the middle of a field. Really touristy shot I know! but I do like it.
Flamborough Head Windmill. This was previously a windmill but appears to now be a tourist site.
Flamborough Head lighthouse. This was shot with a Hasselblad once again on Velvia 50 and with a circular polariser. The deepness of the sky is absolutely stunning with this lens, film and filter combination.
Staithes when the tide is out. I’ve only been to Staithes once for a very quick walk around but I saw these boats that had been moared when the tide went out. Again shot with the Hasselblad I maybe should have used a ND filter on the sky but I love the square format composition. Another places I will go back to one day to reshoot.
Staithes rooftops. Again badly needs an ND but it was one of those white sky days and I haven’t had the opportunity to go back.
Yorkshire Moors. This was taken about half way between Malton and Whitby. In hindsight I wish I took a panoramic but I love the colour contrast between the sky and ground.
Fisheye sheep. Liv and I went to an old abbey which wasn’t really worth talking about but we stopped for a picnic and saw this sheep who was baying us for food.
