Photographer's Note

In geography, a sound is a narrow sea or ocean channel between two bodies of land.

This is Plymouth Sound, a bay in the English Channel at Plymouth in England.

The sound has three water entrances.The marine entrance is from the English Channel to the south, with a deep-water channel to the west of the Plymouth Breakwater.There are two freshwater inlets:one, from the north-west, is from the River Tamar via the Hamoaze and Devonport Dockyard, the largest dockyard in Western Europe.The other at the north-east, is from the River Plym disgorging into its narrow estuary Cattewater harbour between Mountbatten and the Royal Citadel.

This shot was taken from the Mount Edgecumbe Estate, looking east across the Sound.
