The latest mini meet was to a trip Saltwick Bay organised by member Mark Graham who has also kindly provided the write up below...
On Sunday 13th April a group from the club gathered at the Full House at 4.00 am for the drive across the North York Moors to Whitby, with the aim of photographing Saltwick Bay as the sun rose.
With favourable weather forecast, and inspired by club member Sara Cremer’s landscape photography presentation the week before, a dozen of us managed to make the early start. What was expected to be a small trip had turned into an impressive gathering of photographers!!
With everybody assembled above the bay we wrapped up warm, sorted out cameras and tripods, and headed down the steep path to the beach just as dawn began to break. We spread out across the beach, with each photographer searching out a location to capture the rising sun. As the sun rose, the light changed and the tide receded we each moved from one spot to the next to take advantage of the changing conditions.
By around 7.30am the tide was far enough out for some of the group to scramble across the rocks to reach the shipwreck and capture a few shots as the water receded.
With the shooting over, all that remained was the climb back up the cliff, followed by a well earned breakfast in the holiday park cafe!
Take a look at the gallery below showing off our members images that they captured on they day.
