A PHOTOGRAPHER'S PLAYGROUND
When I first came to Whitby about 5 or 6 years ago I was only just getting into photography as an actual hobby. I'd always enjoyed taking holiday snaps but that was as far as it went. Then one day, when I was looking for a new hobby I just picked up my little pocket camera and went for a walk. I loved every minute of it, from the day out walking, to the editing of the pictures at the end of the day. I've never looked back since and now I hate to leave home without my camera in case I see something 📷
I have to say Whitby and all the surrounding area does not disappoint!!!
It doesn't matter what level of photography you are at. I have recently upgraded from a compact to a bridge camera which I absolutely love. But Whitby is such a characteristic place that whether you take pictures on a fancy camera with all the lens attachments or whether you use your mobile phones, they would still look great 📱
This beautiful area also has many subject matters to choose from. If you love photographing flowers Runswick Bay is always beautiful in Summer. I just love the walk down to the beach through all the houses and their lovely gardens🌷
If you like wildlife there are loads of walks to be had where wildlife of all sorts can be spotted. The Sealife Centre in Scarborough has some wonderful photo opportunities too.
If you want to travel slightly further afield there is Tropical World in Leeds where they have a wonderful selection of Butterflies. The selection of topics to photograph is endless... boats, architecture, wildlife, fossils, beaches... I could go on...
Whatever you decide to photograph...
