The Lowestoft trawler 'Excelsior' LT472 motors seaward. The previous week she had taken part in the 2014 Tall Ships Race (from Falmouth to the Isle of Wight) then continued to London for the celebrations that followed.

The view is from Lower Hope Point, on the Kentish shore, with the Essex shore visible almost as far as Coalhouse Fort. Container ships are never far away from this stretch of river, but for a moment the scene appears remote and rural.
