Tynwald Day 2012 – Our Isle of Man Political Leaders
Had a very brief and quick trip down to Tynwald Hill today to mark the Isle of Man’s National Day (July 5th) I did not get too many images but was able to grab a shot of all our Political leaders (MHK’s MLC’s and Lieutenant Governor etc) after the Tynwald Ceremony, they were all seated outside the Royal Chapel in St John’s. The images were captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens and cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

St Lukes Church – West Baldwin
St Lukes Church in West Baldwin was formerly attached to the parish church of Kirk Braddan and now Marown, the church was built in 1836 on the site of a Celtic church called “Keeill Abban”, an ancient Celtic cross has also been built into the west gable section of the building which was also used as a school up to 1871. Behind this chapel and up the hill is the ancient site of *Tynwald which was held there as far back as 1429 and is now marked by a circle of stones. *Manx Parliament The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

St Johns Church – Royal Chapel – St Johns
This image shows the entrance to the famous Royal Chapel at St Johns and its worth noting the direction of the Three Legs of Mann which is dated 1848 – (click image for larger view). I have had many a debate over the direction of which way the 3 Legs of Mann should point, but ultimately the legs should point in the opposite way to which you can see here, the correct direction which can be traced back to the pommel on the Manx Sword of State in the 12th century should point in the opposite direction to this image! – Source Manxscenes.com The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
