A Walk Down To Port Mooar Maughold (With Ted)

We took Ted for a walk down to ‘Gob ny Portmooar’ today, this remote beach is just South of Maughold Head Lighthouse and Teds first distraction was this flock of sheep which were being rounded up by the farmer and his wife.

Image 2 on was captured the headland rocks at ‘Gob ny Portmooar’ and looking up towards Maughold Head lighthouse.

Both images were 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.

  1. The view of Maughold head is by far the best view in the world, and I have been around it! There is a house on the way into the village which I would love to live in. I was seriously ill around three years ago, but just looking at that view would have halved my recovery time. last time I was there was in September 2012 and spoke briefly with one of the Maughold residents. He walks his dog each day looking at this view. What a lucky man! I have an A3 picture hanging in my bedroom which reminds me until my next visit.

  2. I like the sheep shot. Taking it against the light could so easily have burned out all the highlights, but you cracked it. Well done!

  3. Hi Peter, I was born and raised in Ramsey, my wife and members of my family spent three weeks at the cottage 0n Port Mooar beach, had a great time, enjoy your pictures very much, cheers.

  4. My ancestors (Callow Balldromma-beg)farmed on a croft above Port Mooar, about where the hedgerows converge in the middle distance. No doubt they made the trek up this path many many times.
