Last winter I went on a family trip to Suffolk. It was cold and bleak, but as we strolled along the sandy beach watching the sun go down, the scene became more and more beautiful. I was inspired by some photography I had seen that day in a local gallery, and wanted to capture my own version of this gorgeous beach scene. I am particularly drawn to the views of the fence, which leads the eye along into the distant horizon. The colours were muted and beautiful. It was such a special evening and I am so glad that I was able to share it with those dear to me.
