Staithes low Tide
A different perpective of Staithes taken at low tide and looking back onto the village. Ive had many photography trips to Staithes and it is very difficult to try and capture something unique; which is what i usually intend to do. Staithes Low Tide reveals another side to this historic village rarely seen; and i was luck enough that the low tide coincided with sunset. This natural harbour on the Yorkshire Coast has been used from at least Viking times when they came ashore here; naming this The Landing Place. In more recent time this was a busy fishing port now only a few boats remain. Tourism is the new industry in Staithes; with people coming from all over the world for the annual festivals and to simply see and take in the sights a sounds of this romantic Fishing village. Staithes offers a great deal of accommodation now; in the form of holiday cottages and hotels. The proximity of Whitby and The North Yorkshire Moors National Part only gives more appeal to anyone considering visiting this stunning location.
