Occidental Jetty, River Thames

Occidental Jetty over the Thames, Canvey Island, England. Green monochrome art photo by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Pier-Shaped.

Taken at Canvey Island, England. The water beneath the bridge is the River Thames, not the sea as it appears, although it’s close enough to the ocean at this point to be affected by tides.

This is what the jetty looks like from the top. It’s supposed to be blocked off, but thankfully someone put a ladder in an opportune spot at the bottom, enabling access. Even though there’s a chance to be seriously injured on the way, places like this are too good to remain unseen and unexplored. And, let’s be honest, the danger enhances the view.

There are two other photos from this place, Oil Bridge, and Oil Bridge II.
