This waterwheel which turns on the Washing Floors of Laxey is called the Snaefell Wheel (also known as Lady Evelyn).

This wheel was purchased by the Snaefell Mining Company in 1865 until 1910 when the wheel came to the end of its working life. From there, it was sent to the Cornish Mines until the 1950s when there was no longer use of it. Years later Pete Geddes from the Laxey Mines Research Group brought it back home to the Isle of Man, restored it and In 2006, the wheel began turning once more.

A slightly different perspective of this little Manx lobster fishing boat sitting below the Raglan Pier in Port Erin.

The tide was well on the way out and I was able to walk around the inner pier to capture this image.

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.

Taken from Approximately 28m in the air from the cage of the Aerial Ladder Platform last week.

In August 2008 this beautifully designed Victorian building was vacated and the staff and inmates were all transferred to the new Isle of Man Prison in Jurby which is now fully operational.

This type of architecture will probably never be seen again on the Isle of Man.

The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
