Lifebuoy... Beach... Sea ....Sky

There are always some shots I look for on holiday...the 112 SOS lifeguard station ...and a lifebuoy.

 

I shot this lifebuoy last year (we went to the same hotel in 2012 as we did in 2011 !!!!) ......The lifebuoy has been moved a few metres along the beach. The big pole is only pushed into the ground and is therefore moveable.

 

Last years image is shown below:

 

This image is carefully composed..........the lifebuoy is on the thirds, textures in the sand, the shadows, crouched down POV to emphasise scale, the rope and poles holding the right hand side , movement in the sea and a few tiny fluffy clouds....oh and an almost letterbox shot !

 

I upped the saturation by 10% in photoshop elements to give the colours slightly more impact and oomph
