Scarborough Yorkshire – Back from a nice family weekend at Scarborough in Yorkshire for Thomas’s birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Thomas, 9 yesterday 😀
As always on family weekends away and holidays, photography by morning while all are in bed and family (without the camera) by day so everyone is happy.
The weather was far from ideal for photography once again but I’ve been at this long enough now to know conditions on the day are what they are, you just have to try and work with them and adapt your photography to suit. Typically on the morning we went home the weather broke and the fog and mist cleared to a chilly but sunny morning. By our last day on Monday I was tired after getting up early all weekend, but I still managed to drag myself out of a warm bed, get into the car and drive down to the harbour for photography and a little sunshine.
Partly due to the weather and partly because I wanted to, I had a good practice taking video clips this holiday so the video below is a good bit longer than my usual time-lapse videos, which is no bad thing and the way I want my videos to be going forward. Edited into the video are 3 time-lapse clips – for those who may be interested, the clips are made up of 200 images, taken 6 seconds apart to make a finished clip of just 8 seconds. If you enjoy the video please consider commenting on YouTube, this really helps build my small channel, thank you.
A few images I took with a little info below each.
Molly Malone’s seafood bar on the front in Scarborough has been there far longer than I have been going to Scarborough, I can almost taste the Prawns, Mussels, Cockles, Welks and Crab I as look at the image.
The harbours are two distinctly separate areas, and at one time the larger inner harbour was solely for commercial fishing purposes, whilst the outer smaller harbour was reserved for pleasure boats.
A pano of the leisure side of Scarborough Harbour as the sun (yes sun!!) was just starting to rise and break through the clouds.
Typical, we set off home a few hours after the weather broke and I took this image.
Scarborough was the world’s first seaside resort; it was essentially where the seaside was invented. By 1735 it had an early form of bathing machine, the wheeled precursor of beach huts, and continued to be a pioneer in all things seaside and many of the innovations begun there were copied elsewhere around the country.
