Whitby Snowstorm

It's a cold bleak winter day as the snow falls over the fisherman's cottages at the entrance to Whitby Harbour. The stark silhouette of Whitby Abbey and Church perched on the cliff top gave Bram Stoker the inspiration for his novel 'Dracula'. The photograph was taken using Kodak black and white Tri-x film with a Rolleiflex medium format camera
