Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

As talk of celebrations for Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee gain momentum, it reminded me of a photograph that I took of something which was built to celebrate a previous milestone, The Milennium.

This is The Spinnaker Tower, situated at the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour. It was conceived as part of the Milennium Project and, being taller than Blackpool Tower, taller than The London Eye, is the tallest publicly accessible building in the U.K. It is 170 metres tall and has three viewing platforms. On a clear day, it is claimed that, views as far away as 23 miles can be seen.

I took this shot from the cross-channel ferry when returning from France.

Many thanks for stopping by to view Portsmouth's icon.
This place has a special place in my heart as my son went to university in Portsmouth. My best wishes, Bev :-)
