Isle of Man High Definition Range (HDR) Imaging

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!

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, dipped in HDR, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

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.

St Lukes Church in West Baldwin was formerly attached to the parish church of Kirk Braddan and now Marown, the church was built in 1836 on the site of a Celtic church called “Keeill Abban”, an ancient Celtic cross has also been built into the west gable section of the building which was also used as a school up to 1871.

Behind this chapel and up the hill is the ancient site of *Tynwald which was held there as far back as 1429 and is now marked by a circle of stones.

*Manx Parliament

St. Sanctain’s Church, Santon, stands on the site of an ancient Church or Keeill built around fifteen hundred years ago, It is strategically placed and commands a view of a large sweep of the sea looking towards the north-west coast of England and the mountains of North Wales. It can be seen by travellers sailing on the sea and flying by air as they come over the coastline towards Ronaldsway Airport. Thus for fifteen centuries the present Church, and its predecessors, have always been a landmark by sea, land and air. The present building was erected in 1774 and is a good example of an old Manx Church with its white walls and rectangular shape.

The original building was one of over a hundred Celtic Keeills, or “treen” churches, which were scattered all over the Island.

The images were all captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
