Dusk at the beach and an exciting surprise
Lens: K-70 Camera: DA16-85mm Photo Location: Egmon, NL

I had planned to p!ss around a bit with multiple exposure mode on the K-70 combined with long-ish exposures (a few seconds) without ND filter. To my surprise the coast guard was going through an exercise as I was walking down the beach - quite spectacular to watch as they backed this monster truck on threads up into the sea to launch the lifeboat and retrieve it a couple of times. Quite an evening!

1. A man and his dog

2. Egmond lighthouse

3. Ready to launch

4. Retrieval of the lifeboat
