“Out in the Wash” is where Ewen has taken us for Contest #85, this image is one of two artificial islands off the east coast of England (only one is visible on Google Earth). The Wash itself is a large shallow estuary that is home to many protected bird sanctuaries. This island, also known as outer trials bank, was built as part of a water reservoir experiment back in the 1970’s. There is not much information available online, but here is a BBC video that explored more about it.
