A Weekend In Scarborough

Whilst I have mastered taking photos of small objects and beauty products, I need a lot of practise when capturing the great outdoor! I don’t have the greatest of confidence when it comes to taking outdoors photos, it’s kind of overwhelming but I love nothing more than to take my camera out with me and snap away.

And I did just that when I visited Scarborough at the weekend.

For a late September weekend, the weather was so amazing. The sun came out, the big coats came off and it just felt like a calm Summer’s day! We had lunch at the famous Harbour Bar, followed by an strawberry ice cream sundae, and then a ride on the open-top bus! I love chilled days like this, especially as the month has been so hectic and I’ve been power-walking all over the place lately.

Below are some pics that I took off my phone (and then brightened/added filters using AfterLight app which is well worth getting! I have written about here on my Blogging Tips Photo Editing blogpost)

Enjoy the photos!

    Thanks so much for sharing this 🙂 For someone who doesn't take a lot of out and about photos these are seriously beautiful!

    I've not made it to Scarborough yet, we've made it to Whitby but Scarborough is still on the list! I need to get myself to the ice cream parlour!

    This post brings back so many wonderful memories! I visited Scarborough a lot when I was younger as my grandparents friends live near there, and we always had the best time! Your photography is so dang dreamy too Sarah, just beautiful x

    Oh I love Scarborough! I used to spend every holiday there (or France – big difference!) as a child, so it's full of memories for me. I can't believe you went to Alonzi's – their chocolate sundae was so good! I must go back at some point, but a five hour drive just won't be happening any time soon…

    I recently went to Scarborough too and took some similar pictures to yours. I still can't believe your friend had a wedding planned and it was kept secret, I couldn't keep my mouth shut about something huge like a wedding lol x

    What a pretty spot – all of the colours (and the ferris wheel, of course) make Scarborough look just magical! And as for your photos, I think maybe your confidence hasn't quite caught up to your skills yet, because these shots are gorgeous 🙂

    I love the pictures Sarah, you can't even tell that you don't usually take landscape pictures. The sundae looks so good too! x

    I've been going to Scarborough every year since I was about five and I never get sick of it! This post has made me want to visit again, I love it so much xx

    Oooh you take wonderful pictures, Sarah! I was planning to go to Scarborough last month, but it didn't work out. Thanks for the link to your editing tips posts – I need all the help I can get!

    I'm the same with taking photos of the outside. I find it such a challenge. Also I find taking photos of the home hard as well 😛 I suppose there's just so much to include! xx

    It certainly doesn't look like you haven't mastered outdoor photos – the colours you've picked out make Scarborough look amazing!

    I think these are my favourite type of posts to read and do myself 🙂
