[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The lifeguard on the motorized vehicle travels from lifeguard station to lifeguard station checking on the individual lifeguards manning their stations. These young men and women have a pretty difficult job, particularly when maneuvering a vehicle between the people, umbrellas, tents and towels.

Thanks for viewing and have a great weekend!

Nice beach scene and it is in line with the theme but clearer reference indicating the actual people in the shot at work would be beneficial TFS
warm regards

Hi Werner

Looks like south Queensland back home.


I like the repetition of the blue umbrellas, which also form a nice diagonal line. Excellent sharpness & high pov. Tfs!

Hello Werner,
Yes indeed the work performed by these young beach are hard but most of them probably enjoy being outside and be at the beach. A fine and appropriate posting, the diagonal from the umbrella is attractive, and there is good sharpness. Best regards.

Bonjour Werner,

Nice contribution to the them. Effectively, lifeguard could be very hard work, even if it looks glamour as a job. Nice diagonal composition. TFS.


Werner, wherever this photo was taken is where I want to be this winter. Nice shot.
