  1. Wightlink’s Car Ferry “Victoria of Wight” is sailing across the Solent from Portsmouth Gunwharf to Fishbourne on the Isle of Wight. In the meantime the “Morning Post” belonging to the Eukor shipping line (a vehicle transporter) approaches from Southampton at the start of a long journey which will see her ultimately arrive in Durban, South Africa.

  2. A gale force Westerley wind is blowing off the Solent across Ryde Pier on the Isle of Wight. There has been a lot of heavy rain, but this has passed by. However a squally shower is passing over the city of Portsmouth which is being caught in the setting Sun causing this beautiful, but short lived rainbow.

  3. Heavy rain and strong winds have lashed the Solent all day. The rain has passed over, but there is still a Force 8 Westerley wind blowing in as the Sun sets across the Isle of Wight. The view was taken from inside Wight Ryder II (as tge outside decks were closed) and the spray from the sea can be seen on the window.

    Farnham Town score on the rebound from a missed penalty under the floodlights. Sadly for Farnham the game finished 2-1 to opponents Tadley Calleva in the Combined Counties League.

  5. The largest warship in the world, the USS Gerald R Ford pays a courtesy visit to the UK. It is far to big to anchor in the Royal Navy Dockyard in Portsmouth, so sits at anchor off of Stokes Bay in the Solent.

  6. A heavy rain shower and bright sunshine combine to form a beautiful rainbow across the Solent. The city of Portsmouth is obscured by the rain on the right of the picture. This shot was taken from the Ryde Castle Hotel in Ryde, Isle of Wight.

  7. A beautiful study of Island Line’s Unit 484 002 waiting at Ryde St Johns Road Station with the setting Sun casting its golden rays on the train and the wet track. After 2 x days of heavy rain, the track about a mile away is heavily flooded and sadly the train will be going nowhere for the rest of the day.

  8. The Sun is slowly setting, but is obscured by the clouds over West Ryde on the Isle of Wight looking towards Cowes and Osbourne House (former residence of Queen Victoria).

  9. A view over the Solent from Ryde Pier on the Isle of Wight showing the clouds over Fawley Oil Refinery. It has been a stormy day, but that has now passed.

  10. A crow sits surveying the scene on a lamppost on Ryde Pier on the Isle of Wight.

  11. A heavy thunderstorm has passed over “The Badgers” pub just outside Petworth in West Sussex, and the setting Sun replaces the earlier thunder, lightning and torrential rain.

  12. A beautiful “Fly Agaric” toadstool in the Hogmoor Inclosure.

  13. Petworth Station in West Sussex last saw a train in 1966, but today is a wonderful Bed & Breakfast Hotel. Some of the accommodation is based in 4 x Beautifully restored Pullman Coaches built circa 1914. This view shows 4 of the Coaches (a fifth one is under restoration) on a Sunny October morning.

  14. The early morning sunshine and perfect blue sky illuminates HMS Warrior and the town of Gosport on the opposite side of Portsmouth Harbour. This view is from the area known as “The Hard” which is just adjacent to Portsmouth’s “Historic Dockyard.”

  15. A view along Ryde Pier to the town of Ryde on the Isle of Wight. To the South storm clouds are rapidly gathering and the sky is starting to look menacing.
