We had a walk around this lovely Church and the Graveyard the other day.

The image of the Porch shows ‘The Orouboros’ or the snake swallowing its tail inscribed into the upper right sandstone block which is built into this porch, snakes have many symbolic meanings, good and bad, but this one is universal, it represents the concept of infinity – and of the end being also the beginning, we can only guess how this stone came to Maughold Church!

The first glimpse of sunshine for about a week on the Isle of Man so went for a walk up to Maughold Church.

The mountain is North Barrule and the ridge top left takes you over to Clagh Ouyr.

This stained glass window inside St. Peter’s Church in Onchan depicts Maughold Parish Church and the “Maughold Parish Cross” which is a 14th century St. Bees sandstone carving and is one of the earliest representations of the 3 Legs of Mann (apart from the 3 Legs inscribed on the Pommel of the 12th Century Manx Sword of State) it is also interesting to note which direction the 3 Legs are pointing!

I have taken a number of images of the stained glass windows in St. Peter’s and I will add them to Manxscenes.com over the coming months.

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6

I captured this image this afternoon whilst out for a walk over Maughold Headlands, you can see the weather front moving across North Barrule mountain and shortly after this image was taken it absolutely chucked it down!

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