Aldeburgh at Night

I sat on the beach with my family on night on holiday, it was an on the spur decision and oh it was worth it. The moon rose low and red, the august metiorite shower was in full sway and the milkyway hung in the sky like a cloud that’s not quite there.
I have not done it justice and I’m not entirely happy with the skyline, but I’m trying to practice my landscapes so here we are.

I tried replicating the scene from memory the next day with the help of some very, very poor phone photos I’d taken. This is how it turned out.
