Just inside the the entrance to Bishopscourt Glen (north of Kirk Michael) is an artificial mound named Mount Aeolus, created by Bishop Hildesley to commemorate Captain Elliott’s victory over the French off the Manx coast on 28 February 1760. The mound which is shaped in similarity to Tynwald Hill has a inscribed monument on the top of it detailing Capatain Elliott’s victory. The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Captured this image today whilst travelling from Peel to Ramsey of the sandy West coastline of the Island from Kirk Michael up to Jurby Head, with the evidence of coastal erosion quite prominent. You can also see in the top left of the image the white spire of Jurby Church. The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 90mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5. Click on the image for a larger view!
