A little bit about Manxscenes.com and Me.

Welcome to my website, my name is Peter Killey and I live on the wonderful Isle of Man, I have been photographing images from my place of birth since around 1999 and I personally invite you to join me in my non stop photographic journey around the Island where I live and love 🇮🇲

Peter...Click on any of the images on my website to view a larger version of that picture, all of my images are of course captured on the Isle of Man, please feel free to leave a comment on any of my posts if you wish.

My Isle of Man images comprise mainly of  landscape, seascape, wildlife/nature, architectural, heritage and transport photography from around the Island (basically my Manx life images in general).

Please keep having a look back at my website from time to time as it is updated on a regular basis. Enjoy…

    Hi Peter,

    beautiful pictures. I am writing an article on the Island I hope to submit to a Norwegian newspaper. Is there any possibility of using a couple of your pictures?

    Love your photographs. I used to stay in Glen Vine in the 50’s and 60’s and return as often as I can. Very little changes. I used to attend Marown school on the hill where I was taught by a Mrs Kelly and Miss Gelling (Great teachers) and the cook was Olwyn (I think). Great times and your photographs keep me in touch with the magic island.

  6. Hello Peter,
    I am from the Netherlands and I have a look once a week here.
    It is a pleasure to see your stunning pictures from around the wonderful island Isle of Man.
    I’m a fan of the island and of your pictures.
    Greetings from the continent.

    Hi my grandad was from Kirkmichael
    I never met him, he died during WW1 but my great Aunt Eleanor Clague lived in a little cottage opposite St
    Michaels church she used to do the flowers from her beautiful garden for the church and she was the local midwife for years, I hear the cottage isn’t there now and would love any photos you may have of it.
    I haven’t visited since 1960s but still feel a pull towards IOM very much

    I am a great granddaughter of the Craine who owned Ballacraine Farm and while visiting in 2004, we learned the farm was recently sold so we did not feel we should try to enter. Your photos are beautiful of the island and 2 photos of the tavern and cottage.
    My husband and I found every person we met friendly and helpful. It was a wonderful experience.
    I was hoping to find photos of the farm by aerial view to show our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, all living here in Richmond, Virginia USA, as a part of our geneology, but so far, have not.
    Thank you for your beautiful works.

    My mum was born on this beautiful Island but was taken over to England as a child. I, along with my 2 sisters & 1 brother used to visit the Island many times while mum still had relatives living on the Island. I started visiting with friends in my teens and & then with my husband & our children. I still feel very attached to the Island. I go to see my grandma & great grandma & a few relatives where they are buried each time I go. We have been living in California USA for the last 40 years, and still have very good friends in Douglas. I do not get to visit much any more. I would like to thank you so much for your beautiful photos, I miss seeing the Island very much. My oldest son is going with his wife & son this year, the first time since we lived in England, I know they will all come away feeling the same way I always do, feeling it is a magical Island.

    • Thanks Marlene for your kind comments.

      You have a lot of good memories for sure and I am sure your eldest son will love the Island.

    Hi Peter love your work. I was born in Ramsey in 1932. Still have excellent memory, touch wood.. I spend summer in Canada and winters in Florida. Still have family on island. I write poetry. I wrote one years ago about standing on Ramsey beach on a quiet night and the moon was making a path to where I was standing. Do you happen to have a photo of the light of a high moon reaching the shore. I was a teenager but never forgot it. Marg Corlett Kennedy.

    Hello peter
    Nice photos , I was born on the Island and lived there for many years but have lived in the USA for the last 30 yrs, When we were kids we spent hours messing around the old slate quarry above Kirk Michael . The fields in the back ground used to be our farm.
    Lots of memories
