Here are a couple of images of the new Ramsey Park Hotel on Mooragh Promenade.

The hotel which opened at the end of August 2012 was built by business tycoon Mr Trevor Hemmings and the building has had mixed reviews from local residents.

The images were captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

The guy that you can see on the Footbridge is actually manually winding a large wheel to shut the bridge!

This footbridge was built in Derby at Britannia Iron works by Andrew Handyside and Company in 1903 at a cost of £414 and this Victorian footbridge is still in constant use to this day!

The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS5

This lovey traditional Yacht called Wild Wave enters Castletown Harbour this afternoon, it had no outboard enging and as there was not much wind the gentleman ended up getting his oars out to complete his journey.

I have added the original image and the same image in High Definition Resolution (HDR) so you can tell me which one you prefer!

The images were captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS5 (image 2 dipped in HDR 5)
