I am very pleased that my photograph of a Fire Appliance in front of Peel Castle has made a £3 first day cover (Miniature Set) Manx Stamp which will be issued towards the end of the month.
Famous and royalties spring to mind.
I captured Duty Pump Foxtrot 1:1 today whilst the sun was shining and whilst this handsome appliance was sat awaiting the next shout at Douglas Fire Station 🙂
The appliance is a 6 personnel 1800 Litre Water Tender Ladder Appliance which was body built by UK company Emergency One.
The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
