Maritime Images 1:
The Solent, 1985-2011

Other than family holidays at the seaside I have had no obvious links with the sea. However, like many people, I developed an interest in ships and ports which, in recent years, has become part of my work as a transport professional.

This gallery features a modest selection of images, taken over a period of 26 years, with more to come as time permits.
