Gazing westward from Robin Hood's Bay

It's not just the views east over the north sea that make the climb to the top of the cliffs at Robin Hood's Bay worthwhile. Looking west's not half bad either.


The mist held off for 4 days and we basked in glorious sunshine, but on Sunday evening the wispy death crept in from the hills to steal the last gasps of life from the week.


Next day was Monday. Boo. (But I had the day off, so f*ck knows why I'm whingeing.)


This one's not as sharp as some of my other HDRs, because the thought of un-bagging and setting up my tripod was just too much to bear. I had sunburn and my fingers were getting cold from the chill that preceeded the mist. A strange combination of pains. Pain tapas.


Anways, the usual applied: Photomatix - CS3 - Neat Image. I actually broke my 10 minute rule for this one, owing to the time spent trying to reduce noise in the mist. It's quite a soft image as a result, but I'm fairly happy with it.


Best viewed in a larger size and well worth it if only to see the buildings in the mist.


I like the fence, which is something I've never said before. But then I've never liked a fence this much.


Fencelove. Is that wrong? Who cares when it feels this right.
