Peel

Peel Harbour today and the water is a bit discoloured after torrential rain on the Isle of Man yesterday (22/6/12) and overnight.

This image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera dipped in HDR 5 and resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5

I always love this little traditional street in Peel, the houses are mostly Peel Sandstone and the traditional street lights make it even more original, I must get down one night to capture a few low light shots.

I love these bronze statues which depicts Norsemen pulling on a rope, what you cannot see is that behind the glass and inside the House of Manannan and attached to the other end of the rope is the Viking Long ship Odins Raven which is being pulled onto shore by these Norsemen, if you have not visited the House of Manannan, believe me it is well worth a visit.

The reflection on the glass is the Creek Inn Public House and the Spire of the disused St Peters Church in Market Street in Peel.

A beautiful cold, crisp sunny winters Saturday afternoon on the Isle of Man and a typical Manxscene looking towards Peel Beach and Promenade from Peel Breakwater whilst having a cuppa tea from the kiosk on the Breakwater 🙂

Spotted this beautiful, pristine little Austin A35 on Peel Breakwater yesterday, I can only presume that the registration number reflects the year the car was first registered on the Isle of Man.

Any ideas of a date of registration for this lovely classic car?

The image was taken 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.

Standing on the footpath at the side of Peel Castle and looking over Fenella Beach towards a busy Peel Beach.

The mountain centre left is Greeba Mountain and the hill to the right of the image is Slieau Whallian.

The spire in the centre right of the image is St Germans Cathederal which is why Peel is classed as a City!

I captured Moore’s Manx Kipper curers, curing their kippers on Monday 13th June, the air around the quayside in Peel smelt very strongly of burnt oak shavings, as you can see from the image the roof vents were open and they were well underway with their kipper curing.

Just in case the many signs surrounding the building do not stand out, Moore’s cure and sell Manx Kippers!!

I had to closely crop this image as there was a lot of overhead cables and the Peel Power Station chimney in the background.
