Photographer's Note

Not gallery quality (also used higher compression this time to keep the size larger -- did it hurt?, but an image of Whitby, an English seaside village on the east coast of England. The ruined abbey (up on the hill -- can't really see it in this picture) is supposedly the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula (he visited Whitby at the time he was writing his vampire novel). In fact, in the book, Whitby is the port where the Russian ship bearing Dracula's coffin runs aground in England.

It's a very picturesque seaside village with a beautiful harbor, a boardwalk, the a strip with the usual British seaside sites (chip shops, amusements, etc.), and some nice older streets, though they can be a bit hilly! We spent the better part of a day there last month (didn't make it up to the abbey, though...) and will probably go back. This picture was taken from just off of the pier (to the rear-left), facing towards the town center. A bit of color balancing, a bit of sharpening, and a slight crop.
