when we went down to Pompey last year we just didn't have the time to visit the Tower - after seeing those photos
I wish we had made time.

Martin,

If you put the shots taken from the Tower through the colour correction facility of Photoshop or a similar program it will remove the colour cast caused by the tinted glass.

Great photos, Martin :-))...I love the mini boats O0.

I was only ever in Portsmouth once, way back in 1993, long before planning for the Spinnaker Tower had even commenced. We did go to the dockyard, though, and on board HMS Victory as well as seeing the Mary Rose. Good memories.

What a great place. I've never been to Portsmouth and had no idea it was so nice.

Those mini boats have given me an idea   O0

I'm going down to have a look. Thanks for showing us Martin

And Gina just loved Bob's huge dog, Tia.
