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. (source: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Isle of Man). The image was 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.

Peel on a busy Sunday Afternoon
Standing on the footpath at the side of Peel Castle and looking over Fenella Beach towards a busy Peel Beach. The mountain centre left is Greeba Mountain and the hill to the right of the image is Slieau Whallian. The spire in the centre right of the image is St Germans Cathederal which is why Peel is classed as a City! The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 20mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5. Click on the image for a larger view!
