A bit of a breeze blowing up on Douglas Head this afternoon and I just couldn’t resist this one of the Manannan backing in to her Berth.

Coupled with the Gorgeous WW1 commemorative display of poppies on Douglas Head now in full bloom which is a total credit to Douglas Corporation Gardening Department for such a fantastic display up on Douglas Head.

High above Douglas the silhouette of these derelict cottages on Carnane Hill can be seen from far and wide around the surrounding areas of Douglas.

Maybe someone can tell us a bit more about their history??

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Spotted this little Robin whilst out walking on Douglas Head.

I suppose it fits into a Christmas theme as such!  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy and Prosperous New Year (Nollick Ghennal as Blein Vie Noa).

The Great Union Camera Obscura is one of only four remaining camera obscuras in the British Isles.

Unlike other structures, which were built for astronomical purposes, the Isle of Man’s camera obscura which nestles into the hillside on Douglas Head was built in the 1890s purely as an attraction for the flourishing Manx tourist industry.

Here is a small article that I added to this website about the Camera Obscura in May 2005 Click Here

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-70 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

This image of Douglas Head Lighthouse was captured just before the last of the winters day sun dissapeared.

Douglas Head Lighthouse was originally erected in 1832 and replaced by this Lighthouse in 1892 at a cost of £32,000 it stands 32m above sea level and the Lighthouse has now been automated and is now in private ownership.

Took this image tonight (29 June 11) of Douglas Head whilst on the Ben My Chree which was turning in Douglas Harbour.

The building to the left top of image is the former Douglas Head Hotel which is now Douglas Head Apartments, the building on the right is Broadcasting House, which is better known as the building that houses Manx Radio.

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 85mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

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.

The images were taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 28mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
