Photographer's Note

I have recently moved from Ireland to North East England. This is the fifth country I will live in but even with a lot of experience in moving I am still exhausted. North East England seems to be a wonderful place for a hobby photographer. However both professionally and privately I am entering an extremely busy period in my life so sadly I will be much less active on TrekEarth but I will do my best to stay in touch.

Whitby is a lovely town at the North Yorkshire coast. We have spent there one day and it was not enough to explore all it has to offer. It has a labyrinth of charming small streets on both sides of the river and a promenade along the beach. There are plenty cafes and restaurants. It has a great atmosphere. At the top of a cliff you can visit spectacular ruins of a monastery (in this photo). This angle does not give it a justice but due to the presence of reflection it is the most popular spot for photographers. I will definitely be a frequent guest in this beautiful town.

Whitby Abbey is a ruined Benedictine abbey overlooking the North Sea on the East Cliff above Whitby in North Yorkshire, England. The first monastery was founded in 657 AD by the Anglo-Saxon era King of Northumbria, Oswy as Streoneshalh (the older name for Whitby). It was disestablished during the Dissolution of the Monasteries under the auspices of Henry VIII. It is a Grade I Listed building in the care of English Heritage and its site museum is housed in Cholmley House.
