Aerial photos show underwater Solent dangers

The Solent's dangers, wrecks and banks are clearly visible in pictures taken from the air during an extremely low tide

An extremely low spring tide in August gave the opportunity for aerial pictures to highlight ever present dangers in the Solent.

The Solent Shallows website has 62 different images, showing the Solent’s trouble spots, and how they have changed. As the pictures show, Shingle Bank has moved slightly, Brambles Bank is lower and Stone Point is far larger and shallower.

All the images are free to view on the website in low resolution, and a CD of high-resolution images is available for £7.50.
