What struck me about this scene was the vapour trails from aircraft passing over. There was no sign of any planes, just dozens of vapour trails…..

It’s the composition that caught my eye. This stillness in the air allowed some early morning mist to hang in the distance, and the surface of the river was very still.

It’s not a spectacular sight, but it was just a moment that made me stop and look….this area is a mixture of industrial shipyards and other messy bricks and mortar stuff, and nature areas, beaches and protected sand dunes…and the most vapour trailed sky that I have ever seen!!

  • I’ve walked this stretch of river on many occasions, this soft and understated image is very evocative. Nice work.
