Although Queen Victoria's holiday Home, Osborne House is located near to Cowes on the Isle of Wight, it is not visible from the Cowes Ferries. I was fortunate to capture this image recently from the deck of the Paddle Steamer Waverley when I was on an excursion around the Island. The Towers at either side of the House are known as Belvedere Towers but I am uncertain as to the origin of the name.
