Former city (pop., 2001: 608,288), southeastern Ontario, Canada. In 1998 it joined the cities of Etobicoke, Scarborough, Toronto, and York and the borough of East York to become the City of Toronto. North York became a borough in 1967 and a city in 1979. Moors, the subject matter ranges from fabulous sunsets at Saltburn pier to moody portraits of famous landmarks like Whitby Abbey Whitby Abbey is a ruined Benedictine abbey sited on Whitby's East Cliff in North Yorkshire on the north-east coast of England.
It was founded in 657 AD by the Anglo-Saxon King of Northumbria, Oswy (Oswiu) as Streoneshalh (alternately known as Streoneschalh .
An unusual study of Saltburn pier lit at night is particularly stunning, as is a spectacular view of a North York Moors Railway steam train at Ruswarp.
Doug, who lives at Easington near Loftus and is entirely self-taught, started experimenting with a box Brownie camera in his teens.
He gradually improved and bought better equipment and became more adventurous in his subjects as he got older.
Doug said: "The Cleveland and North Yorkshire North Yorkshire, county (1991 pop. 698,800), 3,209 sq mi (8,313 sq km), N England. The county comprises the districts of Craven, Hambleton, Harrogate, Richmondshire, Ryedale, Scarborough, Selby, and York. coastline is fantastic and ever changing and you can get some really spectacular shots."
In June, another exhibition of Doug's work will go on display at the Danby Moors visitor centre in the North York Moors National Park.
His exhibition at Guisborough library is free and continues during library opening hours until Friday.
