RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station updated their cover photo.

An amazing picture by Kevin Long, a professional photographer from Brighton, Sussex.

Kevin captured our ALB coming back from exercise a few months ago and made a composite image from that photo with a lightning shot from the other night!
He's won a local competition for the photo and wanted to share the image with us!
