Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of the harbour sands at Whitby in North Yorkshire. The muddy sands are revealed by the low tide and the water reflects the ship moored in the harbour. Sutcliffe is best known for his naturalistic and spontaneous style of photography, especially his portrayals of Whitby's fishing community. He was a founder member of The Linked Ring Brotherhood and was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 1941.
