TQ7178 : Evening sky over the 'Poplars', Cliffe Marshes, lower Thames

taken 10 years ago, 3 km from Cliffe, Medway, Great Britain

Evening sky over the 'Poplars', Cliffe Marshes, lower Thames
Evening sky over the 'Poplars', Cliffe Marshes, lower Thames
The ruins in the middle-distance are shown on older maps as 'The Poplars'. They stand very close to the ruins of the old explosives works, and may once have served as an entrance lodge for the industrial site Link. The dark, low skyline marks the course of the Thames seawall, though the hills seen faintly in the distance are across the river, in Essex. The mood of this shot reminds me of one of my first Geographs: TQ7778 : Halstow Marshes: 'The Shades' (otherwise known as Shade House), derelict, circa 1975

This shot was taken at about 18.20 on the evening of a very warm day, with a temperature of 29.9C recorded at Gravesend, just a few miles up river.
