The Scallop at Aldeburgh

Is one of my favourite sculptures, designed by local artist Maggi Hambling dedicated to Benjamin Britten (composer who spelt much of his life in Aldeburgh). It stands approx 15 feet high and can be found on the beach just up from Aldeburgh town. I love how the light changes how it looks, how clouds can darken the shadows and the sun can make the surface glimmer. As I stood setting up my camera children scurried and peaked out from under it, couples leaned up to take a selfie against it and families gathered around it.
