My recent photo had such an unusual title that nobody probably expects that this time I have simple used a real name of the village which you see in this photo. Robin Hood’s Bay is a small village at the North Yorkshire coast located south of Whitby and north of Scarborough. Both Whitby and Scarborough are rather busy coastal towns, both very attractive and definitely worth of visit. Robin Hood’s Bay together with Staithes which I have presented a while ago, are tiny villages with narrow streets and tiny houses squeezed in a relatively small space. The legend says that Robin Hood was here. Was he defending the village against French pirates? Did he have here his secret port? None of that is probably true but the name surely helps to advertise this charming place and although not marked on any international map, it is full of tourists.

Your new part of the world seems packed with lovely places not much known to most of us, or is it maybe that you have a way of making them look lovely? This is a fine view from a perfect POV, the houses with their very typical chimneys in the foreground and the rocky coastline along the bay in the background. The slightly hazy light is well captured and the colours are very pleasant.

a charming place indeed. This looks like a quite corner of the world where one can make a decent living.
Very well presented with a good framing. The little village takes center stage in front of that pleasingly curving coastline. Very nice work indeed.
have a good time

Je ne sais pas si Robin Hood a défendu le village mais j'aime bien cette photo et toutes ces cheminées qui émerge du toit des maisons. Le point de vue est bien choisi , l'endroit au bord de l'eau est magnifique et beau contraste de couleurs.
Toutes mes félicitations,

the village of Robin Hood’s bay from this advandage POV with the charmy houses to dominating the scene.
I like the warm falling light on the houses making the image more effective and sharp.
Have a good day,Danos

Yes, mee too, the name caught my attention. Great viewpoint that shows a simple view of this town. Beautifully captured with enough lighting that exposes every detail well. The only thing that I didn't like is the bush on the right side that seems to be obstructing the view. Nice presentation regardless! TFS!
regards from Valencia,

A very beautiful view with the foreground village with strong and sharp colours and the fields across the bay in softer colours. A very well composed picture!

Hello Mariusz - The day I visited Robin Hood Bay, the weather was not as lovely as this! Here very nice light adds contrast and detail to the little village. I love your composition, the green FG giving way to the houses where the chimney pots are a super feature and nicely displayed thanks to the sea forming the backdrop. The band of cliff top fields completes an attractive scene. Lovely! Warm regards Rosemary

Best wishes - Brian.

nice p.o.v. with the bay in bg and village in fg. good light and colors.
williewhistler (15259) 2012-10-24 4:07
Hello Mariusz ,
I do like the way that the interesting houses are cradled in the curve of the bay,the pleasant low light adds it`s own charm and modelling to what appears to be a most dramatic stretch of coastline.
Best regards Les.

There are few places on the east coast more attractive or steeped in legend, than Robin Hood's Bay. I like how you have captured the close intimacy of the houses and still been able to provide a context for its position, high on the Yorkshire cliffs.
You have a lovely mixture of light and shadow, defining the textures of the terrain and the sea.
Have a lovely day,

About village name,good advertising sells products. :)
Nice view on the elegant British architecture in the village, and a beautiful coastline in the background.
Sharpness,clarity and high point of view are perfect.
Excellent light and colors are fantastic.
fabbs99 (16813) 2012-10-24 6:05
Beautiful scenery and perfect photography.The picture is perfectly good on its composition, details, colors, atmosphere and quality.I love to see the uncountable numbers of chimneys which make the rooftops more charming.TFS.
Noel_Byrne (26559) 2012-10-24 8:41
What a beautiful little cluster of buildings! Amazing how even such a small place can have such a fascinating skyline with the chimney tops. This is positioned in a wonderful place to allow that dramatic craggy and colorful backdrop.
All the best
tyro (21588) 2012-10-25 13:46
A very fine photograph with the most lovely soft lighting which brings out all the details and textures in the buildings as well as the distant cliffs and fields. Your composition is very pleasing and the exposure, colours and sharpness are perfect.
A beautiful photograph with a very interesting note to accompany it.
JFS (32459) 2012-10-25 22:47
Splendid image, with a good deal of balance. I ike the sence of trankility and the delicious light and colors. The depth of field is extraordinary!
ikeharel (61393) 2012-10-26 4:05
Legends have a tendency to live long after, Mariusz.
Yet, the place is overwhelming in sight along the coastline, matching the tale.
Fine shot conveyed calm atmo., with mild light and good DOF inspite of some mist.
macjake (59954) 2012-10-26 7:31
another keen photo!
really really nice shot.
and what a difference it makes that you added the landscape in the bg. if you scroll down the page, until the landscape is out of view, it totally changes the feel of the scene, makes it worse. so its important to have that extra elegant piece to complete it.
love seeing all the chimney stakes, and you picked a picture perfect time to shoot this with the warm side lighting.
enjoy your day
adramad (39770) 2012-10-26 11:26
A wonderful panorama of this beautiful and sheltered bay, surrounded by cliffs, beautiful green meadows we see the background image of this lovely group of houses in the foreground, which seem to be crowded, I like the touch of the chimneys, which rise on all roofs.
Very nice color in soft colors, with a nuanced lighting is very nice.
Have a nice weekend.
Didi (58422) 2012-10-26 11:34

cześć mariusz, Widzę że stopniowo poznajesz okolicę i odkrywasz tam prawdziwe perelki. bardzo przyjemne miasteczko. I nie ma to jak w okolicy morze albo góry, a najlepiej i to, ito. fajne domy. Czy zauważyłeś że nasze domy nie maja kominów na bocznej ścianie, raczej na dachu w środku. turaj ten las kominów wygląda bardzo atrakcyj nie.
Pozdrawiam z Warszawy, jest deszczowo i ponuro, tęsknie za Afryką :).M

The village's name is quite interesting. The photo is masterfully composed. Roofs with multiple chimneys are spectacular. Light and the quality is excellent. Bravo.

Very beautiful and pleasant-looking place!
Very attractive and charming picture!
Sharpness, exposure (wonderful side lit elements), (lovely soft colors) colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent here too!
TFS - congrats,
Waylim (25368) 2012-10-29 9:03
Beautiful shot of the bay with such orginal name. Off course it make us think of the story of movie. Certainly this village has changed since. Yet the story remained, but the scnery is as beautiful, the way of life and housses is modernized.
Regardless, it is a beautiful image with good light. Good POV and composition.
abmdsudi (45644) 2012-10-30 0:54
This is fantastic way of showing a picturesque impression of this bay of the famous name with spectacular composition and viewpoint. Looking at this gorgeous eye catching cottages and its striking delightful colors and subtle light is a real pleasure, at the same time they provide outstanding contrast to the slight misty background and the whole scene. This is another excellent photo worth your effort. Thank you and congratulations.
siolaw (38292) 2012-11-01 3:07
Good elevated POV in order to have water behind the houses. Nice framing along the coastline on top of the photo too.
Natural colours and sharpness always appreciated!
delpeoples (54455) 2012-11-03 7:02
heheheh in comparison to the title of your previous photo, this title is very conservative. But it also conjures up images of Robin Hood and his merry men and the idea of just how far he travelled from Nottingham. Another very beautiful high POV, lovely colours are superb details. I particularly like the play of light on the grass in the right foreground. Lovely shot, thanks for sharing.
Angshu (56454) 2012-11-07 0:44
You certainly advertised for the place well! I had never heard of this before. A nice picture of a charming village, with the houses all huddled together with the bay in the BG & open fields.Nicely framed with the foliage. Well done!
annjackman (20535) 2012-11-09 21:57
I like the lovely lighting and the soft colours. The sea is very calm. The curve of the headland seems to cradle the village in the bay and thereby protecting it.
We were there in July but found it very busy with tourists and schoolchildren on trips. I would like to visit out of season sometime.
Excellent quality image as usual from you - TFS.
KInd Regards, Ann
s_lush (16134) 2012-11-11 9:29
This village has unusual name and unusually attractive architecture. In addition it situated at the unusually picturesque bay. You have chosen a favorable point of view, perfectly balanced composition and good framing. Excellent representation of this unique place!
jemaflor (88125) 2012-11-21 9:31
Lovely view with these interesting pov on these houses and the coast in the bg, good light capture, tfs.
Kielia (24073) 2013-02-03 7:51
this is really a very nice sight seen from your unique POV. Your excellent photo gives me a very good idea of this bay. Last but not least you have also captured a wonderful mood. My compliments also for the notes!
