Scale Nab, Bempton Cliffs. Afternoon effect (2015)
Bempton Cliffs on the Yorkshire coast famous for huge gatherings of breeding sea birds and is also the site of spectacular rock formations such as Scale Nab. Bempton Cliffs used to be used by the locals for what they called "climming". Someone would be lowered down the face of the cliffs by rope and that person would gather the seabird's eggs which would either be eaten or sold. The practice was outlawed in the late 1950s beginning of the 60s.
