1062 : Robin Hood's Bay


The odd thing about re-scans of old colour negatives is that they never look quite as old as re-scans of monochrome negatives of the same age. I must have taken this picture 25 or 30 years ago. It was taken in Robin Hood's Bay in North Yorkshire. It could have been yesterday.

It really is a wonderful, serene photo, Alan. Ahh..in teh day before cell phones, overhead music constantly blasting away, etc.

Not literally yesterday , it couldn't - unless the trees had died! It may be very wet this year, but the trees do have leaves on them, at the moment.

A lovely picture though. Most of your pictures are and I enjoy them immensely. Thank you.

Great shots are timeless, maybe? But then that would be true of b&w shots, too. I suspect the quality of the color film may have been better. And considering that color has been the dominant medium in photography for around 50 years now, b&w has automatically come to look somehow "antique".

Nice that there are no satellite dishes spoiling the buildings.

Beautiful photograph. I can't get a good scan from my color negatives.
