Still Never Mind the View

By Fefe
Following on from Never Mind the View this is the view from the very end of the cliff above V1, taken through the gaps in a wire fence.
It was a sweltering hot day and there was a big band of cloud hung over the mainland.
I favour the lead image over the actual view taken from the searchlight, and I have not got one of the front of the searchlight as I was too eager to photograph the tunnels 🙄
There is another of the tunnels in the versions and a view of the guns at the top.
I hope you like the set, I have another couple of the tunnels maybe for a later date.
Edit: Something I forgot to mention, In V4, the building at the back of the image, a small concrete box shape slightly to the side, is the entrance to the spiral staircase that takes you to the tunnel.

Have a good weekend everyone! and thank you so much for the response to my upload yesterday 😄😄

A fine view looking out to sea in the lead, Diane (and V2) 😃👍🏻 Loving the versions, especially the tunnel in V3. Such a shame our coach driver didn't take us here on my last holiday to the IOW 😳 I mean, how can you not visit the Needles on a holiday there? 😬 Thanks for showing what I've missed 👍🏻

Despite having been to the IOW innumerable times, I never got to the Needles. Something I see now was a mistake as there is more history there than I was aware of.
