Grabbed the opportunity today to get some images of my Firefighter colleagues who are also travelling Marshalls for the Isle of Man TT Races 2011, left to right, Leading Firefighter Paul Hunt (Big H), Sub Officer Tony Duncan (Dobber) and Firefighter Chris Fargher (Little Chris), all sat on their sparkling new Yamaha R 1′s
Low tide overlooking the two Ramsey Piers with the striking sandy Bride coastline running up to the Point of Ayre in the background.
The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 135mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
Spotted this Helicopter today which arrives on the Isle of Man prior to TT Week and is used for medical emergencies for the TT.
The helicopter is sat on the Vagabonds Rugby pitch adjacent to the TT Grandstand in Douglas.
Lets hope its not used for TT 2011.

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.
I captured this vessel moored about a mile north off Ramsey Bay today (just off the Dog Mills in Bride) I am pretty sure she was sheltering from the severe gales that the Island is experiencing right now.
