Fishing

Today we had pollution warnings over the SE of England and the air around Dungeness had a horrible soupy yellow quality. Normally it is very clear with big big skies.

The air pollution isn't too apparent in this photo. I like it despite that because it has a peaceful, serene feeling with the odd juxtaposition of what I assume to be a hide for bird watchers on the right and the fisherman, braced, to the left. Everything points towards the hide - the clouds, the shingle and the sea but for me, it is the fisherman that gets my attention.

And oddly, just behind us is the huge nuclear power station which is currently being decommissioned. Instead of the usual steady almost subliminal thrum of the reactors as a constant background, there is now a babel of crashing, smashing and crushing of concrete and steel. So loud!
