Shingle Street, Suffolk
I have photographed this row of Coastguard cottages at Shingle Street many times before and it is always good to experiment with different angles and viewpoints. On this particular day my attention was drawn to the dark grey of the sky and the aqua green of the sea kale plants on the beach. I thought the colours complimented each other and added an extra dimension to the row of white cottages.
Shingle Street is all about location, perched right on the edge of the river Ore, vast swathes of shingle sculpted into peaks and troughs mirroring the waves on the sea beyond. I wanted to use the sea kale to create a sense of place and a different perspective on the Coastguard Cottages.
