The salt marshes in the estuary of the Medway form the basis for this evanescent vision of floating islands on a calm breadth of river which mirrors the hazy sky, in a very British recasting of a Japanese print. Below the horizon, the tower of Kingsnorth power station raises a slender finger like a rocket about to be launched, or the campanile of some remote Venetian island. The industrial buildings around it and those which hang on the far horizon, on the right-hand of the river-mouth, flicker and blur into the line of light between earth and sky, and are subsumed, like silvery mirages, into the overwhelming silence and space of untamed nature.
