Morning Flame

Down on the river, early this morning, a huge flame was visible above the oil refinery over at Fawley. From Swanwick pool, it must be a couple of miles distant, Fawley lies beyond Netley and across Southampton Water. Presumably they were burning off some excess gas or oil fumes.

Further down river, but still maybe a mile away, the noise of the flame was really quite loud when suddenly it stopped.

Today was a morning low tide so a good opportunity to show that we do have some fine mud. In the background is Salterns Boatyard and some live aboard barges.

The sun was just rising, casting light above and through the trees.

Of course it's not all mud, but it is very crowded.
