Artist's Description

This is one of a group of photos i took after a storm from Burton upon Stather
looking over the river Trent in North Lincolnshire , in fact this is the boundary line on the map . The river is the gateway to Europe and is at its widest soon joining the river Ouse Estuary and river Humber . Although on this photo it is the other direction but only less than a mile . the rivers join like a T junction, left towards Goole or right for the Humber Bridge .. Shipping from countries such as sweden and Russia regularly used this route to bring timber etc into the region . And is still very busy with coasters , the river is too shallow for deep sea shipping ,and if captains leave it too late there ships occasionally run aground . until the next tide . And in the spring the tide swells the river so much it laps onto the top of the bank when the ships go buy gliding majestically sometimes at a a fair old knots when the tide is with them . How they never hit each other is amazing sometimes they blow horns in warning in sometimes seemingly out of control manner as like a vehicle on ice . Small barges carrying sand try and tag along trying to dodge the bigger vessels keeping to the sides but then occasionally hitting a mud bank and you can sometimes hear the faint voices cursing at the bigger vessels like some sort of river rage .
