The coastal village of Staithes in North Yorkshire was once one of the largest fishing ports on the north east coast. The picturesque port is now more of a place to visit to explore the winding streets and still active fishing boats in the harbour. The cliff top paths make ideal viewing platforms to take in coastal life.
Looking back inland from one such viewpoint, here we can see the last light of the day gradually leaving Staithes, but with spectacular skies as a result. The colourful roofs and buildings fighting for attention under the powerful colours generated by the sunset shining through the rain clouds passing through.
