The Great Union Camera Obscura is one of only four remaining camera obscuras in the British Isles.

Unlike other structures, which were built for astronomical purposes, the Isle of Man’s camera obscura which nestles into the hillside on Douglas Head was built in the 1890s purely as an attraction for the flourishing Manx tourist industry.

Here is a small article that I added to this website about the Camera Obscura in May 2005 Click Here

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-70 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Spotted this lovely cruise Ship ‘Deutschland’ berthed in Douglas Bay today.

The liner has 7 decks a crew of 260 and she will hold 530 passengers.

The image was taken from Queens Promenade in Douglas and I have to say it looks very tropical 🙂

I captured this image this afternoon whilst out for a walk over Maughold Headlands, you can see the weather front moving across North Barrule mountain and shortly after this image was taken it absolutely chucked it down!
