This remote part of Yorkshire is a rewarding location for photographers.

Spurn Head is the end point of a small sandy peninsula that forms the north bank of the mouth of the Humber estuary, it joins the Yorkshire mainland at Kilnsea and is around 30 miles east of Hull,

Photographers who are prepared to make the journey to this remote outpost of Yorkshire are rewarded with big skies, sand dunes, long beaches and stunning panoramas.

Those looking for the classic coastal shots can capture one of two lighthouses on the beach or the extensive series of wooden groynes.

Spurn Head is a designated heritage coast and national nature reserve, so you could be lucky enough to capture some wildlife on camera.

Why don’t you upload your Spurn Head photos to the reader photo gallery?
