I always look in the window of this lovely traditional fish shop in Parliament Street in Ramsey.  The fish are always so well prepared and beautifully displayed in the window.

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

The old hotels on Mooragh Promenade in Ramsey were once the site of a World War 2 Internment Camp, you can still see the concrete squares in the foreground of the image that used to hold the upright posts of the barbed wire fences.

The RNLI prototype Shannon class all-weather lifeboat is currently undergoing sea trials in the Irish Sea and is seen here visiting Ramsey Harbour.

It’s the first modern RNLI all-weather lifeboat to be powered by water-jets instead of propellers, making it faster and more manoeuverable when reaching casualties and is expected to be seen within a year or two in the Isle of Man.

The image was 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.

This little lobster boat “Pibbin” which is tied up in Ramsey Inner Harbour always catches my eye whenever I am in Ramsey and I grabbed this image yesterday as the winters afternoon sun was starting to dip down behind Albert Tower.

Here are a couple of images of the new Ramsey Park Hotel on Mooragh Promenade.

The hotel which opened at the end of August 2012 was built by business tycoon Mr Trevor Hemmings and the building has had mixed reviews from local residents.

The images were 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.

Spent a lovely afternoon in Mooragh Park this afternoon to watch this fantastic traditional Inter Celtic Festival.

The description is on the bottom of each image but we were all fantastically entertained by Rinceoiri an Chlair, Irish dancers from County Clare, Mannin Folk, Ny Fennee and the magnificent Ellan Vannin Pipes and Drums.

I caprtued this image today whilst in Ramsey, it generally depicts Ramsey’s Swing Bridge but if you look at the image you will see a few iconic landmarks from the North of the Isle of Man.

To the left of the image you can see St Pauls apartments which are the highest apartments on the Island, next to it is the beautiful St Paul’s Church.

In the centre of the image you can see Albert Tower which was erected to commemorate the visit to Ramsey of Prince Albert in September 1847, when he randomly walked up that hill on his visit to overview the town.

To the top right of the image you can see the second largest mountain on the island “North Barrule”

I took this image on the 2nd July 2011, the image shows the beginning of the demolition of the rear side of the once grande hotel which gracefully overlooked the northern part of Ramsey Bay.

The hotel, which first opened in 1897 as the Ramsey Hydro, closed its doors for the last time in February 2009, click here for an image that I took of the front of the hotel in September 2004 – (click below image for larger view).

I will ensure that a picture of the replacement hotel is added to the site when it happens!
