SZ6299 : Tower View, Portsmouth

taken 8 years ago, near to Gosport, Hampshire, Great Britain

Tower View, Portsmouth
Tower View, Portsmouth
View from one of the windows in the Round Tower, at the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour. During periods of warfare, it's easy to imagine the defending troops scanning the horizon in search of hostile ships.

Nowadays, most of the shipping relates to the tourist industry. To the right of picture, a FastCat is heading for the Isle of Wight. Towards the centre of picture, is an in-coming Wightlink Ferry, and the out-going Normandie Express. On the left, a small fishing boat is returning to the Camber Dock, within Portsmouth Harbour.
