Mumbles All-weather lifeboat launch.

Post by Allymcmurdo » Fri Jul 19, 2019 3:47 pm

Yesterday evening saw the first launch of the Mumbles ALB since the Pier reopened to the public. The launch was a scheduled training exercise.

I second that.... The colours and light are just really nice, so is the composition!
Edit: I must admit I had to look it up where Mumbles is.

Greater Swansea :D


Thanks for the kind comments guys. It was a bit of a bottom twitcher waiting for the Boat to launch whilst watching the battery level on the drone ticking down.

Very nice image.
Can you recover a drone from the sea?

All the best
