A surprisingly interesting part of my holiday was when I visited Le Greve De Lecq on the north coast. There was quite a small beach and a couple of cafes and the all important ice cream stand along the beach, a little further up was the old British barracks and watermill. Walking along the beach a row of tractors caught my eye, they were extremely old and rusted probably bought cheaply as old farm equipment. These tractors were used by the locals to pull boats down to the shore line, I spent a good while taking pictures of them, here are a few examples of what I came away with.
The sky was lovely and blue, which works nicely with the red of the tractor, adding definition to the shapes.
The tractors gave me the perfect opportunity to try out my 50mm lens, I also made good use of my wide angle. Neither of these lenses have ever had so much use as on this holiday and I have found a whole new love for them.
The tractors had amazing textures on them, I especially like the peeling text on the registration plate.
More textures with a high depth of field.
Clearly the sea air and sand has taking its toll on the tractors even more so than when they were fully working on farm land.

Thanks for stopping by, more Jersey pictures will be coming soon.
