The Seated Man is a 3m high, bronze sculpture situated on the North York Moors, near Westerdale. Apparently it is the first public sculpture to be placed in the North York Moors National Park and it will be resident there for 5 years
Having enjoyed my walk along the North York Moors Edge at Osmotherley my next visit was to Kepwick which is a small village to the south.
Most of the time I tend to wander to the east of York, towards the Wolds or the coast but in the past few weeks I have headed up the A19 in order to explore the western side of the North York Moors.
When I went to Byland Abbey recently what I witnessed was so spectacular that it took my breath away. The morning mist was still lingering in the trees and the strong sunlight created some amazing sunbeams.
After a wonderful weekend in November I decided to return to the same apartment for a break in February. All things considered it wasn't the best time to visit with the intention of photographing Saltwick Bay as the tides weren't compatible with sunrise and sunset and the weather forecast for Sunday was only 1 grade short of Armageddon.
The weather forecast for much of the UK was complete rubbish but the Yorkshire coast appeared to be exempt from all the doom and gloom. So off I set. I drove through lots of clag and grot on the North Yorkshire Moors but my first sight of the Whitby coast basking in sunshine actually lifted my soul.
Since gazing in complete awe at the night sky in New Zealand I have always wanted to have a go at photographing stars.
