Photographer's Note

Whitby is one of the highlights of the North Yorkshire coast. Unfortunately it seems that everybody in England knows about it. Once we wanted to visit Whitby on a bank holiday. It took us ages to get there and after one hour driving around we did not find a single parking spot anywhere so we decided to go back home. Last Sunday though we got there quite early, there were not too many people yet, it was so beautiful.

I have showed HERE already three photos of this charming coastal town. This photo was taken from a car park. The view was narrow so the composition options were limited but I still enjoyed it very much. On top of the hill you can spot the Church of Saint Mary.

The Church of Saint Mary is an Anglican parish church serving the town of Whitby in North Yorkshire England. It was founded around 1110, although its interior dates chiefly from the late 18th century. 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. Church Steps, a flight of 199 steps lead up the hill to the church from the streets below. The church graveyard is used as a setting in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula.
