All Washed Up
To highlight the worldwide problem of rubbish collecting in the sea I have photographed a nearby area of flooded gravel pits. Here, amongst ancient willow trees I found rubbish washed up as on a beach. It is an island of rubbish, where remnants of heavy industry collide with the detritus of the present.
And where there is water, there is wildlife, which mistakes this litter for food. It appears like the ‘trash vortex’ in the Pacific. A garbage patch said to cover an area twice the size of Texas.
