Laying in the water, parts of a practising target which has floated ashore on the island of Stora Gråskär, out in the archipelago of Sankt Anna, Östergötland, Sweden. The fog is dense, though the infrared film and black filter in front of the lens see right through. The area where this island is situated was a training zone for the Swedish Airforce, then based in the city of Norrköping northwest of the archipelago. The fins are a piece of a shot down air tow target used for dogfight training or target training from the ground. The object came floating ashore from the outer sea.

Technical facts: The picture was taken on infrared bl&w neg film in dense fog. A black filter was used in front of the lens, only letting through the infrared wavelengths. In nature, chlorophyll reflects this light to protect the plant from heat, making leaves and grass white in the photographs. In the sky, only dust and moisture reflects the light, making clear skies appear dark.
On this occasion, the fog makes the light scatter through the moist, partly seeing through the lousy visibility but painting the sky grey in the greater distance.
