That water is pretty disgusting. What's causing it to be so turbid?

The Thames is still very much a working river. There's some big craft go past that spot, and a cruise dock just across the river - they all churn up the mud. It does support marine life though and it's far better than 30 odd years ago.

Thanks Stepheno for your comments on the environmental state of the Thames. It is indeed a very working river, car carriers, container ships, tankers, tugs, warships, general cargo ships and pleasure craft of all sorts. Dredgers are working 24 hrs a day to keep the shipping lanes flowing. The banks are very muddy and you would not be too happy if the kids were playing in it. Its condition is monitored by the river authorities.
History has it that in the 1850s the Thames was more or less an open sewer - so, along came Sir Joseph Bazalgette. He designed the sewer system and pumping stations, one of which is being restored and can be seen working at Crossness on the Erith marshes in Kent. The big beam engines are magnificent and sometimes steamed-up. Being built in Victorian times there is lots of painted cast iron in the construction - awe inspiring!

Spanish Galleon? Probably going to blast the ‘Brits’ off of Gibraltar. We’re quaking in our boots.

Hi Guys - Let me introduce you to Aphrodite, at dusk, cruising gracefully down the River Thames. UK.
I rarely use ISO 6400, but it seems to work!
