Photographer's Note

Continuing from yesterday I seem to have a bit of a Captain Cook theme going on.
Great Ayton is the village in North Yorkshire where the young James Cook was educated. As I said in my note yesterday, farm labourers sons in those times would not normally have been educated at all, but the landowner for whom Cook's father worked, paid for James' education.
This statue as you can tell is of Cook as a youth, his age when he lived near here in a farm cottage.
The nearest large town to Great Ayton is Middlesbrough about 5 miles away.
It was quite a difficult shot to take framed as it is by the sky. I have had to lighten the statue in curves and also clone out some evidence of disrespectful birds!
