Spent a lovely afternoon in Mooragh Park this afternoon to watch this fantastic traditional Inter Celtic Festival.

The description is on the bottom of each image but we were all fantastically entertained by Rinceoiri an Chlair, Irish dancers from County Clare, Mannin Folk, Ny Fennee and the magnificent Ellan Vannin Pipes and Drums.

The images were captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-70 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens and cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

I caprtued this image today whilst in Ramsey, it generally depicts Ramsey’s Swing Bridge but if you look at the image you will see a few iconic landmarks from the North of the Isle of Man.

To the left of the image you can see St Pauls apartments which are the highest apartments on the Island, next to it is the beautiful St Paul’s Church.

In the centre of the image you can see Albert Tower which was erected to commemorate the visit to Ramsey of Prince Albert in September 1847, when he randomly walked up that hill on his visit to overview the town.

To the top right of the image you can see the second largest mountain on the island “North Barrule”

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

I took this image on the 2nd July 2011, the image shows the beginning of the demolition of the rear side of the once grande hotel which gracefully overlooked the northern part of Ramsey Bay.

The hotel, which first opened in 1897 as the Ramsey Hydro, closed its doors for the last time in February 2009, click here for an image that I took of the front of the hotel in September 2004 – (click below image for larger view).

I will ensure that a picture of the replacement hotel is added to the site when it happens!
