This barge Excalibur which is used for work on the Walney wind farm project is seen here moored in Douglas Bay.

The Excalibur jack-up barge, run by SeaCor is a  4000 ton general purpose barge which is used on work for wind farm developments and in the oil supply industry.

The barge is accompanied by sea going Tug MTS Valiant which is also seen here berthed at the upper end of King Edward Pier in Douglas.

The Tynwald Hill Inn at St. Johns with Slieau Whallian mountain in the background, the mountain is also known as “Witches Hill” and legend has it that witches were rolled down the hill from the top in spiked barrels and if they were alive at the bottom they were judged to be witches and put to death.

This stone-built, Norse-Celtic chapel is dedicated to St. Michael and dating from around the 12th century.  It is now consists of just four walls and a bell turret. The chapel would have replaced a Celtic keeill which possibly goes back to the beginnings of Christianity in the Isle of Man several centuries earlier.  There was a graveyard associated with the early keeill which contained some very early lintel graves. The graveyard, of which no trace remains visible, was used until about 1870 for the burial of shipwrecked mariners and Roman Catholics.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 22mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
