Whitby Abbey

Digital infrared original, 2 frame exposure blend
Whitby Abbey has long been a favorite place of mind; I remember romping around it as a child, and when I discovered it was central to Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, it was forever a favorite. The classic view over the pool to the south of the ruin is made a little more dramatic due to the use of infrared.

Having not been in the ruins for over 30 years, I can't clearly recall what attracted me as a child, but with a camera in hand I was enthralled with the weathered stone...looks almost organic.

I really enjoyed exploring the compositional potential of Whitby Abbey - lines going into corners going into crevices all came together over and over again s I photographed.
