Maggi Hambling’s memorial scallop shell to Benjamin Britten stands 12 feet high and is located on Aldeburgh’s shingle beach in Suffolk, UK.

The sculpture has proved controversial somewhat for some local residents but, as a visitor to the area during October 2016, I couldn’t help but make my own visual record of my visit.

This image was a long exposure captured during the afternoon of the 16th October in between interruptions of tourists and young children using it as a climbing frame.
