The New Swanage Lifeboat

Yesterday saw the arrival of the brand new Swanage Lifeboat, a Shannon Class named George Thomas Lacy and numbered 13-13. At noon, right on time, she was lead into the bay by the existing Lifeboat under the watchful eye of what seemed to be half of the town.

The new boat is a fantastic bit of kit and Swanage Lifeboat crew were justifiably proud to show her off.DSC07901

About Julian Sawyer

It is easy these days to spend hours processing shots on a computer, removing twigs or imperfections, changing colours to make the shot more pleasing or even adding something that may be missing, but I do not do that. Nature, by its very design, is perfectly imperfect and that is how I want my photographs to be. Sometimes the light is not quite right, sometimes the animal will not pose in the way I want or decides to stay hidden, that is the beauty of wildlife photography and I find it frustratingly magical.
