Jersey Buoys

By TrevBatWCC    
After the boat trip out to Corbičre Lighthouse, alighting the boat and heading towards St Helier’s town centre, came across this sculpture of buoys. Couldn’t see any plaque nearby giving any info about it, and despite doing a good search on t’internet, I can find every sculpture on the island but this! It doesn’t even appear on Google Street View, either, so think it has quite recently appeared there.
Having taken V1, thought the chains looked a bit lost against the building in the background, so have lead with my second capture of it, taken on moving a few metres to the left. V2 was taken from standing in the middle, looking directly up.

Many thanks to Mike (Mike_Smith) for his User Award on my previous upload, La Corbičre Lighthouse: a different view , most appreciated Smile

A delightful discovery and so annoying when you can't get a clear shot - however I think you did well in your lead.
You can do tour guides in Jersey now Trev.

That's different.
You could always send the image in an email to the Jersey tourist board to find out more about it...

Well done for getting that better pov, it looks great in the lead image. I love the way the chains bend, or at least give the impression of bending.
