This picture was taken up the North of the Island in Jurby and shows another traditional Manx Farmhouse, as you can see the snow is now starting to melt exactly one week after the big snow of 22nd March 2013.
The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

A trip to any farm usually brings with it loads of opportunities to take lots of images and today’s trip on Easter Sunday brought just that at Creagneash Farm near to the Sound 🙂
All the images were taken either on my Nikon D80 DSLR or my Fuji X10 cameras

Standing opposite the Manx Sea God Manannin at this years Mannifest at Glen Lough is his wife Fand, also known in Irish legend as The Pearl of Beauty.
It’s all a bit mystical and mythical for me, but please feel free to enlighten all my readers if you can explain a little bit about what these statues are all about, please feel free to leave a comment.
The second image I can only presume is a carving of the indigenous breed of a Manx Loaghtan Sheep, this hand built statue stands about 6 to 7 metres tall, and in similarity to Fand if you can enlighten us all please do so!
