If I returned home from work in the Channel Islands to Southampton Airport on a Friday and if the weather allowed, I’d take a look at this working.
Unfortunately time restrictions meant that photographic locations would be somewhat limited meaning I had little variation in the photographs I obtained.
The shots clearly illustrate the much clearer skies that were regularly seen over Southampton Water to those seen inland.
Many thanks Ron - glad you paused on your way home from work.
