The Isle of Wight Photo Gallery   
Welcome to  'The Isle of Wight Photo Gallery - digital images intended to illustrate just how beautiful our Island is.  I continuously update so please keep revisiting.    My aim is to produce this site to the highest possible quality. I would be grateful for your criticism; good or bad I am here to listen; so please do write.
As a retired member of the Isle of Wight Fire & Rescue Service (30 years service) I have produced information on "Fire Prevention"  you can access these pages using the links on the East Cowes Fire Station page.
East Cowes esplanade is situated close to the main Solent shipping channel.  For this reason we are extremely fortunate,  we get to see at close range a whole variety of shipping on route to Southampton or Portsmouth, many on their maiden voyage. I have put together just a few but will continue updating .   Follow this link.
Navigating this site - I have tried to make this as easy as possible.   Enter the site using the PLEASE ENTER link at the bottom of this page.  At the map, click on a town of your choice to receive a page of relevant thumbnails.  Click on a thumbnail to enlarged that view, click the enlarged view to return to the thumbnails.  At the bottom of some pages there is a drop down menu, from here you have the choice to select a town, once go!  All relevant links will turn colour when activated.   Always look towards the bottom of this page for the latest updates.
