Spinnaker Tower


Location : Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, Hampshire.

Spinnaker Tower soaring 170 metres above Portsmouth Harbour and the Solent, the Spinnaker Tower is taller than the London Eye, Blackpool Tower and Big Ben and has already established itself as a national icon for Britain. A world class visitor attraction, the much-admired, elegant viewing Tower stands proud over one of the most fascinating seascapes in the world. Situated on the waterfront at Gunwharf Quays, it offers amazing 350º panoramic views of Portsmouth Harbour, the South coast and the Isle of Wight, with views stretching out for up to 23 miles – breathtaking by day and a glittering sea of lights by night. There are 3 view decks to explore including Cafe in the Clouds at 105 metres above sea level, plus a gift shop and Waterfront Cafe on ground level.

It was in the evening when I captured this image using a tripod-mounted Canon 5DmkIII camera and a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L lens set to 94mm. I used Live View focusing at 10x on the tower. The camera was set to manual exposure mode, ¼ of a second, f/11, ISO 400 and tungsten white balance. The RAW processing and final adjustments were all done in Photoshop CC
