Trafalgar 200: The Crowds

I thought I`d post a small selection of highlights from Trafalgar 200 - for those of you who couldn't make the festivities last year. Trafalgar 200 was the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.

I was there armed with my camera of course. From the sheer number of people there, you could tell something a bit special was going to happen. First there was a re-enactment of the battle in old sailing ships just off Southsea, the entire fleet from around the world had gathered out at sea for a fleet review by the queen and it was all culminated by a fantastic fireworks display - probably the best I`d ever seen. The following pictures will show some of the highlights. I hope you enjoy them!
