Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite
We should have been somewhere entirely different but circumstance and the elements placed us here, on the north Yorkshire coast. I was not entirely disappointed; this coast lacks the grandeur and the spectacular reflected light of the far northwest but if the landscape is shrouded in highland mist then you only have your memories to call on.
Whilst the weather remained benign we walked the Cleveland Way, north from Runswick Bay to Staithes and south from Robin Hood’s Bay to Ravenscar. Much of the coastal section of this 110 mile trail is cliff-edged and the views go on forever. On the clear-skied days we tramped our way north and south, the skies, the sea and even the land appeared infinite, the few people that appeared, wholly insignificant, walking shadows:

Only time goes on forever which is just an excuse for inserting some more Tom Waits. This was the track (Time) that crept into the recent episode of Peaky Blinders – a perfect marriage:
Beautiful images 🙂
Many thanks, much appreciated
Beatiful Post…I love your photos and also the song
“Beatiful” is good too 🙂 Very kind and thanks for taking the time to look and comment.
There’s something breathtaking about fields that reach beyond the horizon. Beautiful images, as usual. Are these edited with Topaz?
Many thanks for the generous comments JDR. The originals are jpegs from a Nikon D600 (complete with oil spots on the sensor removed in Photoshop- another story). I then use OnOne’s Perfect B&W + 20th Century Classic filter “Ansel in the Valley” – so easy to get good results it feels like cheating.
Wonderful vistas and Tom Waits too – great post, Robin
Many thanks Tish – any excuse to include Tom Waits 🙂
Thanks Chris, much appreciated
Many thanks Amar
And thanks for reminding me of Tom Waits.
We must never forget Tom 🙂
Stunning photos for this challenge!
Many thanks Janaline – for once I did not raid the archive 🙂
The last one does it for me….MM 🍀
Thanks Mick – not the intended trip but a good second choice
Amaizing photos, Robin! Congratulations. 🙂 Tom Waits is great! Just in this moment I was listening a Tom Wait´s song but the singer is Solveig Slettahjell. I think it´s an incredible versión:
Many thanks – that is a fabulous interpretation of Take it With Me.
Wondeful post Robin; magnificent captures and post edition, great B&W result, I love it. However, it is my appretiation that, in every picture, the sky and the ground compete to be the subject or protagonist of the photo. Why not trying to give preference to one of them at a time?!
Many thanks Jaime – you make an interesting point.
wow, those pictures are great!
Many thanks Evi, much appreciated
Brilliant, brilliant images!
Many thanks for the very generous comment Nicholas.
They really took my breath away, it was like I was actually there. That doesn’t happen often. Best, Nicholas.
Wonderful images! And special like for Tom Waits! I love him!
Many thanks and you have a fine taste in music 🙂
I missed this when you first posted it, but I really like it.
Many thanks – glad you like it and glad you found it 🙂
I ‘liked’ this post when I first saw it, but on a second viewing the first image really strikes me. Wonderful!
Many thanks, glad you liked it. I was lucky – this was taken beyond the sea wall at Staithes – this ‘landscape’ disappears at high tide.
