This was a RR Griifion powered MK21 Spitfire operating out of RAF Woodvale near Liverpool until it retired in 1951. The white paint scheme signified that it was a Royal Air Force Costal Command aircraft on weather recon duties (flights to check the actual weather before the trainers took off) and the wetlandscape was presumably of the banks of the Mersey known as the Wirral. It would have been early morning and heading southwards back to base (the sunrise being in the East). This aircraft was originally left unpainted to save weight and gain a few knots and feet altitude to aid evasion when employed on wartime PR duties - one of the last of the many.
