The crew of one of our local lifeboats at exercise on Sunday in the Bristol Channel off Burnham-on-Sea. I went up to see what was happening up on the beach with the high winds while the tide was in and was given the opportunity of catching the brave lads and lasses of the RNLI at work.
The second of two shots of them performing a rapid recovery, instead of beaching the boat they drive it onto the trailer which together with the tractor has driven into the sea, a very difficult manoeuvre for both the helmsman and tractor driver as the currents and weather can push the boat off course. The net on the trailer is there to stop the boat

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.
