What a glorious set of B&W pics. They feel like the snow arrived early, although there's none to be seen.

Poutalicious said...

I love the second one especially because of the reflection in the tiles. Awesome, Stewart.

RuneE said...

The Grosmont train for me, please! Maybe because I have taken it?

George said...

All of these pictures are striking, but I especially like the train. Thanks for these beautiful scenes.

All your photos look great in B&W, especially the theatre.

Wonderful sequence of black and white shots from your world. Beautiful.

All excellent captures, a very nice B&W series. I want to go to Scarborough Fair and soak at the spa in the open air, while being entertained with theatre.
Thanks for sharing more of your world.

Those are great subjects and perfect for B&W shots.

Louise said...

Excellent! REALLY love the 2nd photo and the steam engine!

gnometree said...

I loved the photo of the outdoor theatre. How strange that you and babooshka have chosen black and white photos for my world

ViennaDaily said...

This series is beautiful in black and white. First one is an amazing view, where could have you beemn standing at?

Babooshka said...

Of course I am going to adore these being monochrome. The second one just took my breathe away. I never knew such a place existed here.

SandyCarlson said...

Glorious. The bay shot held me mesmerized. All are so nice. I like the way B&W makes me see the shape of things and the relationship between shapes. Great stuff.

Skies said...

I love the photo of the spa. Thanks for sharing your part of the world.

Indrani said...

B&W effect has added quality to the pictures. Nice series of shot!

alicesg said...

Very beautiful scenery from the view on top. Love the B&W photos too.

Marites said...

pretty pictures you got there..the boat picture taken from above looks like they are cute toys.

FickleMinded said...

what a wonderful places i'd love to visit someday!

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Oh Mac I love these B&W piccies of my homeland. Just gorgeous, especially the open air theatre!

Swarna said...

B&W worlds can also look superb. My son has been asking if everything was in Black and white once upon a time...

Reader Wil said...

Great to see those familiar places in B&W , because when I was young everything was in B&W, not only photos but political views and religeous ideas also. The latter have become more complicated and confusing. I don't mind that. We have become more aware of other cultures and opinions. Life is more colourful in all respects.

Esther Garvi said...

That was beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

starnitesky said...

Some great shots here, looking good in black and white, I especially like Runswick Bay with the reflection.

Outhouse Capital of Canada said...

I dont know about the Black but you have turned white with the snow, they just showed London on the news here, My wife is over in Scotland at the moment, she will be mad at the weather wont she.

Outhouse Capital of Canada said...

That Scarbrough open theatre was on "The Royal"

Kerri said...

WOW Imac....these are SUPERB! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that lighthouse!

It certainly looks like a nice part of the country.

Gattina said...

The pictures are nice, but I still prefer colors ! especially for Cornwall that's so beautiful !

Jedediah said...

Those are beautiful photos. I like the train and the lighthouse in particular.

My favorite is the lighthouse. The black and white contrast really works well to highlight the building.
