England: The Isle of Wight

Here is a fantastic photograph taken by Chad Powell at Orchard Bay, Isle of Wight. Perched in the English Channel, it's the largest and second-most populous island in England. The isle was owned by a Norman family until 1293 and was earlier a kingdom in its own right. In common with the Crown dependencies, the British Crown was then represented on the island by the Governor of the Isle of Wight until 1995. If you're interested, here is some history and a timeline of the Ise of Wight: http://www.world-guides.com/europe/england/hampshire/isle-of-wight/isle_of_wight_history.html .................................................................................. #art #photography #nature #education #outdoors
