Morning light at Robin Hood’s Bay

A few from a wander this morning as the first light of day breaks over Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire.

Robin Hood’s Bay is a small fishing village located within the North York Moors National Park and five miles south of Whitby. The village, which consists of a maze of tiny streets, had a tradition of smuggling, and there is reputed to be a network of subterranean passageways linking the houses. As the traditional fishing industry in the town began to decline most of the income now comes from tourism and it was recently named as one of the best in the world and is popular for fossil hunting.

Hands up if you like surfing…?

So I was out today for a couple of hours shooting at a local spot close to me that many who surf the east coast will know about and one which on the right swell, always delivers…today’s lucky winners who scored when I was there were father and son chargers Gary and Evan Rogers and Terry (trout) Bennions.

A River Runs Through It

Today I was offered a great opportunity to go on board the High Tide Adventure and take a trip on the River Tees and offering a unique chance of seeing some of the industrial locations both past and present, along the banks of the river that meanders through the industrial heartland of Teesside.

The boat is named after the High Tide Foundation, a charity formed by PD Ports and aims to raise aspirations and awareness of job opportunities in this sector for young people on Teesside. It is used to provide trips along the river to young people and potential businesses offering a unique perspective on the area.

PD Ports is a shipping and logistics company based on the River Tees and helps to support the international and coastal movement of goods in and out of the north of the UK. It has recently been shortlisted for ‘Port Operator of the Year’.

With thanks to the crew of the High Tide Adventure for passing on their river knowledge, to PD Ports and to Nathan Hobday for giving me the opportunity to go aboard.
