High seas

By jjimmyjimbones
Taken Today on whitby pier, the wind and weather that bad would only chance half way down the pier, half an hour after i took this three people where pulled from the water on the other side of this pier, 2 died another fighting for their life, the life boat tryed to stop them from going out, but they can not have heard them, so the lifeboat was launched. They are very brave men in those seas, but they could not get there quick enough, a very sad day

The sea definatly makes it clear we are not in control. Sad story, the shot works well with it, Maybe you could send it to them to use as a part of their health and safety promo.
