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.

I took this image of the Steam Packet’s Fastcraft Manannan leaving Douglas Harbour on one of our rare sunny days 🙂

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, dipped in Dynamic Photo HDR 5, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

All tied up – The two Steam Packet Vessels (The Flag Ship Ben My Chree and the Fast craft Manannan) seen here tied up in Douglas Harbour and unable to sail today (12th September 2011) because of the severe weather conditions in the Irish Sea due to the tail end of hurricane Katia.

The forecast today has given possible further disruptions for the next day or so also!

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 58mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Whilst out for a walk today on South Quay we were lucky to spot the Steam Packets Fast Craft Manannan entering Douglas Harbour after returning from the port of Liverpool.

The lighthouse to the right of the craft is the Battery Pier Light.
