Sunday morning exercises 1 of 4

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 12 January 2015 in Transportation and Portfolio.

The crew of one of our local lifeboats at exercise yesterday (Sunday) in the Bristol Channel off Bunham-on-Sea. I went up to see what was happening up on the beach with the high winds while the tide was on and was given the opportunity of catching the brave lads and lasses of the RNLI at work

Canon EOS 60D 1/125 second F/10.0 ISO 200 250 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
