The Gruseleck have become synonymous with the Dhoon Corner where they have set up camp during the TT festival since 1981.

Sadly one of the members Michael Pfeiffer of the Gruseleck passed away last year but a bench has been placed in his memory in the nearby Arboretum by a neighbour of the Dhoon.

Grabbed this image the other day whilst up in Ballaragh, The Dhoon Glen is at the bottom of the image, North Barrule Mountain is snow capped to the left of the image and Maughold can be seen to the top right of the image.

The image was 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.

"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.
