This part of the Club's website is a celebration in images of the various species which can be observed in the Whitby area, of local geology, hydrology and soils, of astronomical, marine and weather phenomena observed from this part of Yorkshire, and of buildings and other artefacts of interest for local archaeology and history.

Contribute. Members are invited to contribute their photos to this part of the website. Some may also be shown in the "Recently seen..." section of this website's Home Page. To contribute, please send your photos in high quality JPG or PNG format to the Club's Webmaster together with information about what is in the photo, where and when it was taken, and the name of the person who took the photograph. In cases of doubt, the Webmaster will consult the appropriate Club Recorder. Images may be edited, including cropping and reduction in size, to ensure fast loading on-line.

The software crash which triggered the present rebuilding of the Club's website affected the gallery more than any other part of the old website. In particular, the text information accompanying images in that earlier version was all lost, making a totally new start necessary. The various topics listed below will therefore only gradually become accessible as new material is received and the re-build proceeds.
