Admiral Van Tromp and the Black Nab by 

The wreck of the Admiral Van Tromp at Saltwick Bay near Whitby, North Yorkshire. This was a Scarborough based trawler which went down in 1976 with two of the crew losing their lives. A mystery still surrounds the event.
Taken with Nikon D80 with 10 to 20 lens.
3 stop ND grad filter.
3 exposure HDR processed in photomatix pro then given a few tweaks in cs3.

This is turning out to be my most popular image with over 1800 views at the 5th Sept 2011 and a number of features and success in a couple of challenges. Thanks to all for your your interest and encouragement.

I returned to photography a few years ago after a long break. My ambition was to make images of some of my favourite places. Discovering the work of photographers has also encouraged me to explore new horizons.
If some of my images give pleasure to others, then that makes it even more worthwhile.
