Douglas Head Lighthouse this afternoon.

I think I could live here as the Lighthouse Cottage is up for sale 🙂

This cottage up at the Point of Ayre is a bit run down, anyone know what it’s past is?  I seem to remember someone telling me it used to be a Smithy’s workshop!

*Edit (10.9.14) I have been informed by Mr Eric Corkish who is a Northern Historian that the Cottage was called ‘Goats Cottage’ as the occupants used to herd goats. – Thanks Eric

A lovely trip out on my Mountain Bike yesterday, started at the Ayres and then up the shore line to the Point of Ayre where I was treated to this vibrant Manx Heater and Gorse in full bloom.

This is probably my last post on Manxscenes.com for 2013 and I thought I would share this image of Nick and Ted above Maughold Head Lighthouse the other day.

To all my followers and friends I really do hope you have enjoyed my Isle of Man Images throughout the year, and I wish you all a Prosperous and Healthy 2014 when there will of course be lots more Manx Scenes.  Hee’m oo ‘sy vlein noa (See you in the New Year).

Just look how cold that sea looks and believe me it was freezing up there this afternoon.

Maughold Lighthouse was built in 1914 on the Southern side of Maughold Head, the fully automated light is 65m above sea level and access to the Lighthouse is via 129 steps (non Public access).

Another image from the Ayres taken the other night when the sun was dipping (Golden Hour) 🙂

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud.

We took Ted for a walk down to ‘Gob ny Portmooar’ today, this remote beach is just South of Maughold Head Lighthouse and Teds first distraction was this flock of sheep which were being rounded up by the farmer and his wife.

Image 2 on was captured the headland rocks at ‘Gob ny Portmooar’ and looking up towards Maughold Head lighthouse.

Both images were 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.
