Starting with the iconic Spinnaker Tower, a first of a couple of series of photographs taken during trips to this wonderful city. Our first visits were simply in transit to and from Spain, then we took my stepdaughter down for a whale-watching trip and stayed for a few days to await her return - quite long enough to fall in love with the place.

Portsmouth is a photographer's delight with loads and loads of visual treats around every corner, historic, architectural and aquatic. I love the place and hope to go again and again.

Thanks for looking and I hope my images communicate my delight in the place.

An excellent set documenting the harbour area and activity going on there. Perhaps my favourite is the one of HMS Illustrious as she is facing scrap and we will never see her like again.

Super set of pictures shows Pompey at its best. years I since have been there in daylight, (we usually drop dog with parents in New Forest, then catch night boat to France, before anybody gets the wrong idea!). Need to make the effort next time I'm down there. Spinnaker at night, lit up is pretty impressive, I think you would definitely do a good job on that.
