Hastings Beach

This photo shows the Alfie Elliot being launched. The wooden sleepers that help move the boat over the shingle can be seen by the three men on the left. The boat is being given a final shove into the sea. When it comes back it will be hauled up to its mooring in the same way. I took  a number of shots as it slid into the water, this one at the point of entry turned out the best. I debated cropping the image closer, but I think leaving as it is adds some context to the scene.

The picture below was taken a short time earlier, a bit of colour in the sky and waves normally combine to make a nice photo.
