Coastguard

Popped down to take some images of this organised walk to the Tower of Refuge tonight, there were literally thousands of people queuing to walk out to the Tower at low tide, I just took some images from the Promenade walkway (basically because I could not be bothered queuing and it was starting to rain).

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

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.

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 40mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
