New Year, New Photography / by Lawrence Eagling

Happy 2017! It’s all been a bit quiet on the blog front recently after a crazy Christmas season and time spent launching my gallery webpage specialising in fine art prints (please check it out at and let me know what you think!) I am aiming to update the gallery regularly in the new year with new prints, specialising in landscape and wildlife photography.

Over the Christmas break I was lucky enough to spend a few weeks back in England with my family, exploring the South from the hustle and bustle of the Big Smoke (London) to quaint sleepy villages in the Chiltern hills and peaceful pebble beaches on the south coast. I’ve selected my favourite shots from these trips, particularly those experimenting with long exposures. I love using this technique in coastal landscapes to reflect the rhythm of wave action and then increasing to ultra long exposures resulting in silky waterscapes.

I will start with my favourite photograph of the RNLI Lifeboat station at Selsey, which aside from providing a lifeline for stricken sailors, also creates an incredibly striking piece of architecture above the pebbled beach. The launch here is remarkably long and provides safe passage for the lifeboat in stormy weather and at low tide so whatever the weather, the lifeboat is able to launch.

As always, I hope you enjoy browsing my photographs and I really appreciate any comments or thoughts so if you have any questions please get in touch by email at, Instagram @lawrence_eagling or twitter @LawrenceEagling.

Selected photos from this piece (and many more besides!) are available for sale through my online print gallery at
