A visit to the City
of Peel yesterday afternoon. A dull and overcast day with pictures
taken from mid afternoon until it was almost completely dark.
I'm very impressed with
the capability of the Panasonic TZ200 compact to produce quality pictures
in very low light conditions. 4/1/19
Some aerial photography
in the Tholt y Will and Sulby Reservoir areas yesterday morning , looking
mainly at the ancient Keeil (chapel) site and the two Tholtans (abandoned
farms) located here on the hilltop above Sulby Glen.

Retro Island Images!
I recently came across
these old versions of the website and thought that they might be of interest
to some visitors. The first version dates from
1999 when the site had
probably only been running for just over a year - the picture size is tiny!
The second says it is from 2002, but it seems
that I'd only added
four pictures from that year when I saved it to disc. The format
has started to change to something like the current one and
the pictures are a little
larger. Computer screens were much lower resolution then, as seen
from my 'large' screen backdrops of 1024 x 768.
Don't expect the external
links to work as the pages have been uploaded just as they were in
December 1999 and January 2002.
Eight new Aircraft pictures

Some pictures taken

Some Aerial photography
in the Cregneash and Spanish Head areas yesterday afternoon. After
a bright and sunny start to the day it had unfortunately clouded over by
the time I arrive on sight, but I still managed four flights and took some
reasonable pictures. DJI Spark 17/1/19
Some ground level shots
taken on the walk back from Spanish Head to Cregneash. Panasonic
A small weather 'window'
suitable for some Small Unmanned Aircraft flying opened on Sunday morning
and I visited Garwick Beach, a lovely location
on the east coast between
Onchan and Laxey. DJI Spark 20/1/19
On the way home from
Garwick I stopped at Axnfell for a short check flight and captured this
panorama under lowering clouds.
After some overnight
snow on the high ground, I went out to take some aerial pictures in the
Snaefell area. However, despite Onchan being in sunshine, it was
still snowing up there, so I took some ground level photos while hoping
the weather would clear enough to fly. Panasonic TZ200 23/1/19
After a while the weather
started to clear and I was able to get two flights in, the first from the
moorland track leading from Moutain Box to the north of Snaefell and the
second from the lower slopes of Mullagh Ouyr, south of Snaefell.

A visit to the Injebreck
area late yesterday afternoon, around sunset. Nikon D7100
After a lot of rain
overnight, I revisited the Injebreck waterfall for some more pictures with
a higher water flow, followed by a short walk in the adjoining plantation
and a look at the snow on the higher ground by the Brandywell Road and
Bungalow. Nikon D7100 29/1/19
Taking a short walk
along a nearby forest track (the one time 'Govenor Loch's Road),
I found these amazing moss covered trees, followed by a view across the
valley that I don't think I'd seen before. The views from forest
tracks can change due to tree felling and re-planting.

Road at the Brandywell Road junction and Bungalow.

A winter stroll along
Whitestrand Beach, the temperature was only 2 Celsius but the beach was
sheltered from the cold easterly wind.
