Both Swanage lifeboats. The Shannon class and the D class Lifeboats. With the opening and the naming ceremony of the lifeboat imminent the crew needed to clean the boats and boathouse. I had a great opportunity to step out in the company of Andy Lyons for a very short photo shoot. Its not often both boats are outside for a photo shoot.
Its always good to have a few minutes with a person who has more knowledge to suggest things such as what they are seeing and how they are going to get the shot. A free “Masterclass”. With thanks to Andy and even though I have not seen his yet I am sure they will be stunning. Its the little things like the mini water fall off the ILB Slipway when the right wave comes through. Swanage Lifeboat and station is ready for the public opening just hope we don’t have a shout before then or we will have to polish again.
