Maughold

The first glimpse of sunshine for about a week on the Isle of Man so went for a walk up to Maughold Church.

The mountain is North Barrule and the ridge top left takes you over to Clagh Ouyr.

Had a lovely walk around Ballaglass Glen today, the Bluebells are like a carpet and are just about to fade for this season.

Also right next to the river is this old derelict Flax Mill and you can just about make out the Mills cog wheel

The name Ballaglass could be translated to ‘Farm of the Stream’.

The images were captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

This stained glass window inside St. Peter’s Church in Onchan depicts Maughold Parish Church and the “Maughold Parish Cross” which is a 14th century St. Bees sandstone carving and is one of the earliest representations of the 3 Legs of Mann (apart from the 3 Legs inscribed on the Pommel of the 12th Century Manx Sword of State) it is also interesting to note which direction the 3 Legs are pointing!

I have taken a number of images of the stained glass windows in St. Peter’s and I will add them to Manxscenes.com over the coming months.

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6

We took Ted for a walk down to ‘Gob ny Portmooar’ today, this remote beach is just South of Maughold Head Lighthouse and Teds first distraction was this flock of sheep which were being rounded up by the farmer and his wife.

Image 2 on was captured the headland rocks at ‘Gob ny Portmooar’ and looking up towards Maughold Head lighthouse.

Both images were captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

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.

"Christchurch" The Dhoon in Glenmona - © Peter KilleyThis little church that is situated off the main coast road from Laxey to Ramsey at Glenmona is so hidden in the trees that you cannot usually see it as you drive past.

As winter is now virtually upon us and the leaves have relatively dissapeared from the trees, I spotted this little church today and had to picture it!

According to Frances Coakley’s “Manx Notebook” The first foundation stone was laid in June 1854 and the Church was consecrated in Decemeber 1855.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 18mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
