Took this image tonight (29 June 11) of Douglas Head whilst on the Ben My Chree which was turning in Douglas Harbour.
The building to the left top of image is the former Douglas Head Hotel which is now Douglas Head Apartments, the building on the right is Broadcasting House, which is better known as the building that houses Manx Radio.
The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 85mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
Standing on the steps leading to the Camera Obscura on Douglas Head and overlooking Port Skillion towards Douglas Head Lighthouse.

Mark Higgins’ lap around the TT course in a Subaru rally car today (Monday 6/6/11) turned out to be a very convincing way of how to break Tony Pond’s four-wheel record for the TT Mountain course.
The Manxman completed a circuit at an average speed of 113.505 miles an hour, easily beating Pond’s 1990 effort, when he clocked 102.
I captured this picture of the Scooby returning up Pit Lane in the TT Grandstand after smashing the record.
