Standing on the steps leading to the Camera Obscura on Douglas Head and overlooking Port Skillion towards Douglas Head Lighthouse.

On the bottom image you can see, to the right, the long winding path that you have to take to access the lighthouse.

Scarlett Point Tower is situated on the southwest coast of the Isle of Man, in Castletown. The high visibility orange building was formerly used a coastguard look out tower until the early 1970’s and was then decommissioned.

The Tower has been used by radio hams for the last few years however during World War 2, Scarlett Point was used as a radar station.

You can also see to the back right of the image the ‘Herring Tower’ which is situated on Langness Peninsula.

Mark Higgins’ lap around the TT course in a Subaru rally car today (Monday 6/6/11) turned out to be a very convincing way of how to break Tony Pond’s four-wheel record for the TT Mountain course.

The Manxman completed a circuit at an average speed of 113.505 miles an hour, easily beating Pond’s 1990 effort, when he clocked 102.

I captured this picture of the Scooby returning up Pit Lane in the TT Grandstand after smashing the record.

This Manx slate Celtic Cross caught my eye today, when you look at the intricate, delicate hand carving that must have taken place to display this beautiful piece of artwork, this particular cross is more than 50 years old.

This tiny but beautifully kept Church is one of the best kept secrets of Old Lonan, as you can see in the image there is enough room to get about twenty to thirty people in and the Chapel would be full!!

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 using a Nikon SB-800 Speedlight.
A beautiful, tranquil and peaceful place.
