Here are a few more shots from our recent trip to Whitby. These showcase the wonderful cobbled streets of the old town, including the famous 199 steps that climb up to St Martin’s Church and the ruined Benedictine Abbey atop the East Cliff.
As you can see the grey skies and rainy weather have resulted in a sombre, muted set of images. So rather than work against this in post processing, I decided to convert a number of shots to mono; add vignettes and a touch of grainy contrast to bring out the moody atmosphere even more.
