Storm-lashed beaches, crimson sunrises and millpond-smooth waters are among the final ten photographs shortlisted for RNLI’s My Coast contest, one of which will be picked by public vote via the charity’s Facebook page this week.
The competition was launched last autumn to coincide with an exhibition showcasing the photography of volunteer lifeboat crew member and professional photographer, Nigel Millard.
Mr Millard, who picked the top 10 photographs, said: ‘I looked for striking images that really encapsulate the photographer’s experience of the coastline.’
To vote, go to the RNLI Facebook page before 22 April.
