A windy, rainy Robin Hood’s Bay

This photo is of Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire, which can be found between Whitby and Scarborough. To you it’s simply landscape shot, to me the photograph is a little more than that.

Robin Hoods Bay, North Yorkshire, Yorkshire, John Adams,
Robin Hood’s Bay; such a dramatic and wonderful landscape.

I took the picture during my recent off-roading adventure with Jeep. While I was drawn to take the image because of the landscape, it was, in fact, an experiment in photo-editing.

Having used different editing software for ages, I am now getting to grips with Photoshop. I wanted to see what would happen if I tinkered with the colour balance. After much experimentation I couldn’t get the result I wanted until Mrs Adams walked into the room and we edited the picture together.

Enough about the geeky details. It won’t be of interest to everyone!

Despite having been the local newspaper reporter for the North York Moors area many years ago, I’d never actually visited Robin Hood’s Bay before.

This particular spot was ideal for looking down over the bay. Although beautiful, it is also a harsh environment.

The weather on the day in question was very changeable. At times the sun broke through the sky, at other times the wind was so strong coming in off the North Sea that you could barely stand up.

  1. It is a beautiful shot. You (and Mrs Adams) are obviously enjoying PhotoShop. Would you recommend it? I just use the basic software that comes with the Mac at the mo (or apps) but feel like I’ve reached the stage where I’d like to tinker more.

    1. Well yes, I do recommend Photoshop but it is, compared to some rivals, a mammoth application and I’m still getting to grips as to how you use it and what all the commands do.

    1. I’ve been all round Yorkshire: Barnsley, North York Moors, Sheffield, Leeds. Don’t go much any more but much of it is very photogenic.

    1. Very kind words, but you should have seen the mages that didn’t make it! It took a lot of work to get to this point.
