Isle Of Wight

Spent a lovely weekend on the Isle Of Wight just off the south coast of England. We stayed at the unique and fantastical Enchanted Manor, a wonderful hotel with its ubiquitous fantasy theme, and from where we ventured out to see the island. As I was travelling as the third member of the company of three (who were kind enough to invite me along!), I didn't have a completely free reign to shoot as I wanted and many of these were taken on the fly. Nevertheless, the Isle of Wight has some beautiful sites and towns to take in.On our trip we visited the magnificent Osborne House, to which I will have a dedicated post soon, Queen Victoria's holiday home and the place of her death. We took in a lot of the small sites such as the Pepper Pot (St Catherine's Oratory), from where the views are quite magnificent; the Bembridge Windmill, built in the 1700s, Quarr Abbey, Shanklin Chine, a natural gorge with small waterfalls, and of course the Needles of the north west coast.We also managed to see the rare red squirrel, the UK's indigenous squirrel which has been wiped out from the mainland since the introduction of the American greys. But there as there are no grey quarrels on the island the red squirrel is able to thrive. Another great road trip to add to our list, which includes Lincoln, The Isle of Man and Yorkshire.All images taken with the Olympus E-M5 with either the 12-40mm F/2.8 or the 60mm F/2.8.
