Thank you for the nice comments. Yes, I was sitting on the sea wall at Canvey Island. I had been down the other side of it but at high tide ships wash can catch you out and give you wet feet!

It's a bit limited in angles there if the sun comes out because it's right against you.
Regards

Very interesting views of BM. Were you shore side to take them? In any case I thought they came out very well.
