Day 236 – Lifeboats and the RNLI All Weather Centre

I was lucky enough to visit the brand new RNLI all weather lifeboat centre at Poole at their open weekend. This fantastic location is the home and training centre to the RNLI. It is open regularly for tours – so if you want to find out more about their amazing life saving work you can book a visit.

I had to use my Sigma 17-70mm lens as I was too close to the action to use my Canon lens, but I think I got some interesting record shots of the day. The RNLI really do use bright colours with their signature orange branding, and it was really interesting to see how the indoor photo turned out in the rain – I don’t usually take photos in heavy rain and I like that one a lot. I also like the reflection of the RNLI crew in the water.

It is interesting to see how shooting close and shooting wide can create a different feel to the image.
