Scarborough is a town on the North Sea coast of North Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, the town lies between 10–230 feet (3–70 m) above sea level, rising steeply northward and westward from the harbour on to limestone cliffs. The older part of the town lies around the harbour and is protected by a rocky headland.
With a population of just over 61,000, Scarborough is the largest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast. The town has fishing and service industries, including a growing digital and creative economy, as well as being a tourist destination. People who live in the town are known as Scarborians.
We visited Bristol mainly because of the annual event – Fiesta Hot Air Balloon Festival, apparently the biggest in Europe.
We were waiting with anticipation for balloons uplift at 6pm, but they did not ascend ! Disappointment !?! Yes, the evening was lovely, weak wind, sun, a bit chilly for summer evening, but still great weather to start. Organizer spread the word on Social Media about no delayed uplift for the evening. So, we spent 3 hours in few thousands crowd of people to watch balloons. None came up ! I mean, only one yellow one 😛
However, the evening glow at 9pm-9.30pm that was magical ! All balloons glowed together with music rhythm. Great experience though ! Unforgettable 🙂

Throwback to 2015 and great trip to Whitby 🙂
Whitby is a seaside town in Yorkshire, northern England, split by the River Esk. On the East Cliff, overlooking the North Sea, the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for “Dracula”. Nearby is the Church of St. Mary, reached by 199 steps. West of town is West Cliff Beach, lined with beach huts.

Yes, we arrived in the evening (pictures of Bournemouth by night here) and then said Hello to the sun in the early morning 🙂
I visited Bournemouth on a trip to Stonehenge 🙂 Arrived at night and went for a walk:
We visit Brighton quite often as it is a place where we met and had nice time 🙂
I love the beach, atmosphere and architecture of this city.
Let me show you my best documentary shots ever 😉
The Royal Pavilion is an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton with a colourful history. Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.
Brighton Wheel was closed in May 2016.
The prettiest sunsets ever:
Beachy Head is my favourite place on the South coast. Chalk cliffs of Seven Sisters are magical in every season.
Those pictures have been taken on New Years Day in 2014, on a very stormy day.
A few shots fom Eastbourne 🙂
