Group Description

About the Solent Group
This group is intended to show the glory of the Solent in photos and video. Pictures should be primarily of the scenery, the flora and the fauna as well as the ships and yachts that use the Solent.

This Group supplements the web presence of the Solent Protection Society which can be found as follows

A high proportion of each shot in this Group should include the area below high tide. Where people are included in the photograph, they should be incidental rather than the dominant reason for the picture.

For this purpose, the Solent is considered to be the area from the Nab Tower to the East of the Isle of Wight, through Spithead and north of Cowes, down the West Solent past Hurst Castle and the Needles to the Landfall buoy to the SW of the Bridge buoy. The harbour areas of the Solent, including Chichester, Langstone, Portsmouth Bembridge, Newtown, Keyhaven and all the river ports such as Lymington Beaulieu, Southampton, Hamble, and Cowes. are also included.

For the time being,moderation has been suspended because virtually all submitted photos are relevant to the Group. If this flexibility starts to be abused, the moderators reserve the right to re-impose moderation.

Group Rules

This Group is open to all.
Photos and videos posted will be approved by an administrator or moderator before being made public


Moderators and Admins are nominated by a group of Solent Protection Society Members

Photographs should mainly cover the Solent below mean high water springs. They may show the landscape or seascape; flora or fauna; and the vessels, large and small that use the Solent.

If photos contain people, they should be incidental and not the main purpose of the pictures.

Please tag all pictures "Solent"

Remember flickr video clips may not exceed 90 seconds.

For the avoidance of doubt...
The Solent is considered to be the area from the Nab Tower to the East of the Isle of Wight, through Spithead and north of Cowes, down the West Solent past Hurst Castle and the Needles to the Landfall buoy to the SW of the Bridge buoy. The harbour areas of the Solent, including Chichester, Langstone, Portsmouth Bembridge, Newtown, Keyhaven and all the river ports such as Lymington Beaulieu, Southampton, Hamble, and Cowes. are also included.
