The guy that you can see on the Footbridge is actually manually winding a large wheel to shut the bridge!

This footbridge was built in Derby at Britannia Iron works by Andrew Handyside and Company in 1903 at a cost of £414 and this Victorian footbridge is still in constant use to this day!

This lovey traditional Yacht called Wild Wave enters Castletown Harbour this afternoon, it had no outboard enging and as there was not much wind the gentleman ended up getting his oars out to complete his journey.

I have added the original image and the same image in High Definition Resolution (HDR) so you can tell me which one you prefer!

The images were captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS5 (image 2 dipped in HDR 5)
