Grabbed the opportunity today to get some images of my Firefighter colleagues who are also travelling Marshalls for the Isle of Man TT Races 2011, left to right, Leading Firefighter Paul Hunt (Big H), Sub Officer Tony Duncan (Dobber) and Firefighter Chris Fargher (Little Chris), all sat on their sparkling new Yamaha R 1′s
This Yacht has been berthed at Victoria Pier over the last couple of days, its a Swedish built charther yacht that is 63m long and 11m wide, it has 7 cabins on board and a crew of 15, according to their website you can charter it from £385,000 a week!
The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 66mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
Spotted this Helicopter today which arrives on the Isle of Man prior to TT Week and is used for medical emergencies for the TT.
The helicopter is sat on the Vagabonds Rugby pitch adjacent to the TT Grandstand in Douglas.
Lets hope its not used for TT 2011.
The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 22mm and cropped in Adobe CS5.
Caught these images this morning of Douglas Lifeboat Sir William Hillary taking part in an exercise with a Sea King Helicopter from RAF Valley, I wonder whether Prince Andrew was on board??
