This image is of the Bridge Cardinal Buoy whose function is to indicate to shipping that safe passage around the Needles, Isle of Wight, is to be found to the West of its position. On navigation charts its identifier is given as VQ(9)10s which means that its light flashes very quickly nine times every 10 seconds. The image was taken from the deck of the Paddle Steamer Waverley
