Following on from Yesterdays post, this time the pier is at whitby.

Handheld, so a bit blurry!

From the net.

'Whitby harbour is situated at the mouth of the River Esk, with a total area of about 80 acres. The arms of the entrance piers extend out to sea in a northerly direction leaving the entrance exposed to strong winds from north west through north to north east and sheltered from other directions.

There are two lighthouses and two beacons at the entrance, all with fixed lights, the east beacon showing red and the west beacon green. The west lighthouse is worked manually and is used only when vessels are expected, to indicate that it is safe to enter the harbour. This lighthouse was built in 1835 and is the tallest - 83 ft. In summer it is open to the public as a fine view can be had from the top. The light shows green and has a range of ten miles. The east lighthouse, built in 1855 is 54 ft. high and shows a divided red and green light, the red showing when a vessel is entering on an unsafe bearing - now discontinued due to the placing of a red light on the Church Steps, which serves the same purpose. There is a foghorn situated on the end of the west extension which sounds a blast every 30 seconds during fog'.

Bonjour Stephen,
J'aime beaucoup les perspectives du sol.
Très belle ambiance.
Peut-être le ciel occupe trop de place (?)
