Midnight departure

A large ferry leaves Tilbury Docks to head upstream along the Thames, passing underneath the massive Queen Elizabeth II Bridge between Essex and Kent.

I found my way to the back of a riverside industrial estate and hunted around until I found an unmarked footpath leading between large distribution centres full of lorries and trailers. Following it towards the river, I stumbled through the mud to a large embankment as I was watched warily by wild foxes. I found my spot on a litter-covered area of shingle and set up my camera, took my shots whilst listening to the foxes and the busy docks across the river – this one at two seconds to midnight – and headed back to Jo and the warmth of our hotel room.
