Artist's Description

I thought I would share some of the beautiful views that I get to enjoy living on the South Coast of England. I was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire on 1 January 1961, 20 minutes before my twin sister Lorraine. My family emigrated to Johannesburg, South Africa on 25 November 1975. I returned to Portsmouth in March 1978, but due to personal reasons I returned to South Africa on 29 July 1981 (yes the day of THE royal wedding) returning to Portsmouth on 10 July 1985. I now live on the outskirts of Portsmouth in Havant. There is a large hill called Portsdown were there are some viewing spots and picnic tables where you can look down over Portsmouth and admire the view. On a clear day you can see right across the Solent to the Isle of Wight (which is in the far background).In this shot you can see the Spinnaker Tower which is right by the ferry port and the historic dockyard. HMS Warrior is a big tourist attraction as well as the Mary Rose and HMS Nelson. This picture is a little hazy as the weather kept changing yesterday morning, it was taken a few minutes after the Portchester Castle image.
