Photographer's Note

Its a while since I posted an image from Saltburn. Summer is a good time to catch both sunrise and sunset on the beach, as because of the lie of the land they both occur over the sea when sunrise is closest to NE and sunset is closest to NW. However on this evening, the promised beautiful sunset didnt materialise, but the wet sand was making a good surface to reflect the cloud patterns in the sky. I stood on the pier for a higher POV to catch the reflections better.

The yellow building is the Ship Inn, perfectly placed for a cold beer on a hot day. It was also perfectly placed for smuggling in the 18th century. John Andrew was the Ship Inn landlord in the 1780s and was also nicknamed the King of Smugglers. On the top of the cliff and slightly to the right of the Ship Inn you can see the Coastguard Cottages. Its quite ironic that John Andrew was able to carry out his smuggling trade right under the coastguards noses.

I marked the Ship Inn on the map. (link right) The pier on which I was standing is on the left. The sun was setting behind me under the clouds. :(
