It seems to be a well kept secret that Whitby has its own row of colourful beach huts. Since producing this image and displaying it at craft fairs in recent months I have have a number of queries as to where they can be found. Perhaps not that surprising though since they are located under the West Cliff, a good walk away from the bustling activity of the harbour and the tourist magnet that is the old Cistercian Abbey; not to mention the piers and the busy high street with its array of eateries and penny arcades. These Beach huts offer a moment of peace just before the sun sets, and the promenade on which they are built is a haven for dog walkers and folk just happy to sit and while away the time as the sun sets in the North West.
The light and the colours in this scene were both spectacular and calming and I was happy to just stand and watch it unfold in front of me on a warm summers evening.
