Southsea Beach Here’s the view from Southsea Beach to Horse Sand Fort in the Solent off Portsmouth. Horse Sand Fort is a massive sea fort built during the Napoleonic times to defend Portsmouth from attack from the sea. During the Second World War submarine defences were built in the form of large concrete blocks running about 6 feet below sea level from the fort to the shore at Southsea. On low spring tides they’re visible like this.
Stripes of green and red across the fields near Tillington and Petworth in the Rother Valley, West Sussex. The South Downs are shrouded in mist in the background. Makes up for all the grey skies and rain!
Ahhh, East Beach Café in Littlehampton. Promise yourself you'll make a visit because it's great. Where else can you sit inside an award-winning piece of architectural design, eat great food and enjoy such a spectacular view? www.eastbeachcafe.co.uk
Another photo from my evening at Mudeford Spit at Hengistbury Head, Bournemouth – next to Christchurch Harbour. These groynes form a defence against sea erosion of Mudeford Spit – a narrow strip of sand that stands between Christchurch Harbour and the sea. Great spot for a photo – shame it was blowing a gale! https://flic.kr/p/oMYmqC
