View of Whitby and beyond from behind the Church of Saint Mary. We were too late to visit the ruins of Whitby Abbey, of which I have seen many photos. This photo was taken from the hill near Whitby Abbey. The river Esk is out of view below the church. My lens was not wide enough to fit in the church and the sea to the right. I really needed to stitch a panoramic here.
The Church of Saint Mary is an Anglican parish church serving the town of Whitby in North Yorkshire England. It was founded around AD 1110, although its interior dates chiefly from the late 1700s. The church was designated a Grade I listed building on 23 February 1954. It is situated on the town's east cliff, overlooking the mouth of the River Esk overlooking the town, close to the ruins of Whitby Abbey. A flight of 199 steps lead up the hill to the church from the streets below. The church graveyard was used as a setting in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula.

This is really a splendid view over the churchyard and the town below. The panoramic format works perfectly. I like very much the light and vivid colours. The detail is superb.

A great panoramic shot over Whitby. Super detail and clarity. Good POV.

Jag tycker att detta är en fantastisk bild som förtjänar mycket mer uppmärksamhet. Den övervuxna kyrkogården är en väl vald och originell förgrund, mycket vacker dessutom, och långt där nere i dalen ser vi den gamla staden. Ljuset och färgerna är underbara.

love this! It has to be viewed full size to really appreciate the amount of detail you have managed to cram into this masterpiece of a panorama. Not a piece of your needlework is evident here in this glorious shot. Well done.
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

Wow! What a fantastic image! The view with an impressive church in the background and the tombs in the green foreground looks so beautiful. All perfectly executed with a spectacular sharpness. Well done!

This is an amazing panoramic scene. The gravestones in the foreground add nice points of interest for the scene. The threatening sky adds to the mood of the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness and DOF.
