There have been a number of discussions on this site as to whether you can or cannot see the Isle of Wight from Brighton. I first mentioned it during my 10th Anniversary Tour, you can read about it here and if you look at the comments you will see that some people refused to believe it was possible!
Are doubters persuaded?
I was driving home from Brighton & Hove Golf Course on Christmas Eve and I noticed how clear it was, high above the horizon. I just had to stop and take these photos, if there are still any doubters out there, surely these will persuade them? The photos were taken with my old S6 phone, with a decent camera you could almost touch the Isle of Wight!
