OK then. Here is my feeble attempt at being scientific.
Assume e. coast.
Photo taken at sunset (?) into the sun (see shadows).
Therefore camera facing west.
Two con trails in sky-heading towards Heathrow?
Therefore photo taken south of Thames Estuary.
How am I doing?

I think you'll find the photo was taken at SUNRISE.

Keith is correct. Which makes Brian wrong in all bar correctly guessing that its the East Coast.

Charles, You've just never had the joys of boating around in muck (our version of mucking around in boats.). Here we consider 6ft of water to be an elegant sufficiency!

hey , a kindred spirit - boating about in muck - we use that line here in the Irish Sea usually when we explain that yellow buoys may indicate a swimming area or jet ski area or other points of interest - but around here they are normally associated with sewer outfalls!

Let me in on the secret.
How do you know it's sunrise not sunset?

Alright, so my scientific examination doesn't qualify me for a job in your department then?
