After missing the event for the past two years, one bad weather and the other covid. I finally caught up with the Illuminations at Whitby Abbey, what is generally a yearly event for the English Heritage site.

Bram Stoker’s inspiration in a new light as Whitby Abbey is bathed in dramatic illuminations once again

Prior to visiting the Abbey and waiting for opening, a brief dash around Whitby to capture some of the icons, although the weather wasn’t on side. The distant lack of sun and the howling wind made for some atmospheric shots.

English Heritage put on a large scale show this year, which kept the crowds interested and allowed more time for photography. The cloud cover produced a different background to usual, but the same cloud cover killed any sign of a sunset.
