Poole Harbour Backwaters by 

Image of the Poole Harbour backwaters taken from a vantage point on a hilltop on the Arne Peninsula, which protrudes into Poole Harbour opposite the town of Poole, which is located in East Dorset UK

Camera Olympus E-30, Focal length 14.0mm,
Shutter speed 1/800s, f/6.3, ISO 200
Slight HDR work using Dynamic Photo HDR.

The Arne Peninsula area is under the control of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), which is a British charitable organisation that works to promote conservation and protection of birds and the wider environment through public awareness campaigns, petitions and through the operation of nature reserves throughout the United Kingdom. The RSPB has 1,500 employees, 12,200 volunteers and over 1 million members (including 150,000 youth members), making it the largest wildlife conservation charity in Europe. The RSPB has a number of local groups and maintains over 150 reserves across the United Kingdom.

The lower, fluffy clouds are cumulus clouds, made up of water droplets and the streaky high level clouds are the cirro-stratus clouds which are made up of ice crystals that float around on wind currents, usually higher than 20,000 feet (6,000 metres) above the earth’s surface.
The long narrow, straight looking cloud is a Contrail, contrails (short for “condensation trails”) or vapour trails are artificial clouds that are the visible trails of condensed water vapour made by the exhaust of aircraft engines. As the hot exhaust gases cool in the surrounding air they may precipitate a cloud of microscopic water droplets. If the air is cold enough, this trail will comprise tiny ice crystals
