East Coast of Yorkshire Photos and Locations

Day meets Night - Spurn Point

The East Coast of Yorkshire is my patch now days, so I thought I might show you some of the best places to visit with photos I have captured. Even in my now biased view it is a beautiful and varied area of the UK, with plenty of things to keep you interested and to point your lens at. From Whitby and Scarborough, to Flamborough Head, Bridlington or Hornsea, even down to Spurn Point…

Whitby

Whitby is a seaside town, port and civil parish in the Borough of Scarborough and English county of North Yorkshire. Situated on the east coast of Yorkshire at the mouth of the River Esk, Whitby has a combined maritime, mineral and tourist heritage, and is home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey where Caedmon, the earliest English poet, lived. ~ Wikipedia

Scarborough

Scarborough is a town on the North Sea coast of North Yorkshire, England, within the borough of the same name. Historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, the modern town lies between 10-230 feet (3-70 m) above sea level, rising steeply northward and westward from the harbour onto limestone cliffs. The older part of the town lies around the harbour and is protected by a rocky headland. ~ Wikipedia

Beach Huts - I just loved the colour of these beach huts in Scarborough. Taken on a bright but chilly winters day.

Flamborough Head and North Landing

Flamborough Head is a promontory of 8 miles (13 km) on the Yorkshire coast of England, between the Filey and Bridlington bays of the North Sea. It is a chalk headland, with sheer white cliffs. The cliff top has two standing lighthouse towers, the first dating to 1669 and Flamborough Head Lighthouse built in 1806. The former was designated in 1952 by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building.[1] The cliffs themselves provide nesting sites for many thousands of seabirds, and are of international significance for their geology. ~ Wikipedia

Orange and Blue Hue
Orange and Blue Hue – Once again I take you to the East Coast of Yorkshire, and Flamborough Head. The sun has just risen above the blue of the North Sea and cast its warming glow all through the sky. A high tide shows off the stunning chalk cliffs that stand guarding inland.
Flamborough Dawn
Flamborough Dawn – Before the sun has shown itself fully the calm was all around. The white chalk cliffs of the East Yorkshire coast grow out of the high tide, with both purpose and pride.
Lighthouse Rays

A Different North Landing - A slightly different view of the fishing vessels at North Landing on the East Yorkshire coast. Looking along the boats hull at the patriotic painted Union Jack and then further up and into the background and the old lifeboat station.

Hornsea

Hornsea is a small seaside resort, town and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England at the eastern end of the Trans Pennine Trail. ~ Wikipeadia

Bit Windy - A gusty but bright day on the East Yorkshire coast. The waves were braking and blowing and spraying at Hornsea whilst the winter sun was trying to add some warmth.

Spurn Point

Spurn Point (or Spurn Head as it is also known) is a narrow sand spit on the tip of the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England that reaches into the North Sea and forms the north bank of the mouth of the Humber estuary. It is over 3 miles (4.8 km) long, almost half the width of the estuary at that point, and as little as 50 yards (46 m) wide in places. The southernmost tip is known as Spurn Head or Spurn Point and is the home to an RNLI lifeboat station and disused lighthouse. ~ Wikipedia

Dawn Art

This is obviously a very limited amount of images from each location, but it might inspire you to visit these places and make your own views?
