A very shot trip to Whitby images and video!

After getting some time off work and with an afternoon to spare it can be difficult to find attractive landscape photography shots in the height of summer. If you ask most landscape photographers they will probably admit that this time of year is a real struggle. I tend to find that getting into some high mountains or onto the coast gives the best opportunities. Now that's a challenge in Nottinghamshire. So, after deciding that high mountains was the more difficult option it was a race to the coast, and on the east coast it doesn't get much more interesting than Whitby.

The setting for for Bram Stokers Dracula, or at least the British part of the story, the very place were the Demeter crashes onto the rocks and the count runs up towards the abbey in the form as a massive black dog. The place exudes atmosphere, even with the thousands of tourists milling about its streets it provides a thin veneer for the character swirling underneath. I had forgotten this until our visit and I can assure you that I will be back in the depths of winter with the veneer gone and Whitby's pores oozing as they once did in the 1880's.

Scott Tilley Photography - YouTube Channel

As I mentioned in the about page of my website, at the start of 2018 I opened my own Youtube Channel specifically dealing with all things Landscape Photography. I have found this to be a fun way to engage with other photographers and viewers. The Channel is only in its early stages but I try to produce a new video every week to ten days. Most of the videos run alongside shooting locations and are useful if other photographers are visiting that area of the country and are looking for potential locations to shoot. Mostly the videos are meant to be entertaining with some bits of useful information thrown in. As always I am always happy to receive comments either on Youtube or the website. If you want further information on a location than the video gives please contact me and if I can help I will.

This weeks video see's me coming down to normality after a fantastic week of photography in the far North West of Scotland. I shoot locally and try to get some interesting sots from around Newark Castle and the river Trent area.
