Non IOM (Lanzarote)
Aerial Photo section
I've now completed the
web pages featuring mainly aerial pictures on our recent visit to the Canary
island of Lanzarote. I took the DJI Mini 2 lightweight drone with
me and shot a lot of both conventional and interactive 360 degree panoramas.
I've concentrated on the 360 panoramas for the web pages, but added some
single shots where I think they will enhance the selections. A few
ground level pics have also crept in!
The pic is us up on
the high grounds above Famara.
Well it's the last day
of the year and the website didn't quite end up with the December pictures
I was expecting to take. On the other hand, as a result of my little
accident you've ended up with a big selection of older aerial pictures
from 2000, so there's always a bright side to everything! I've also
been re-working the 'Screen Backgrounds' section of the site, simplifying
it and adding new pictures. For those of you who haven't seen it
before, it gives you a selection of larger aerial pictures (1920 x 1080)
that can be used on computers as a screen background. The new format
is arranged by the months of the year and will be easier for me to add
in new pictures. So far I have produced January to April, with the
other months to follow. Click the picture below to visit the new
Best wishes to all Island
Images visitors, thank you for looking at my pictures and I hope to continue
the service though 2022.
This is the final set
of aerial pictures take in 2000 and the final set I'll upload this year
making a total of 178 in the Aerial
2000 gallery. I probably have a similar number taken from 2001
to 2003 which I'll start uploading in the new year.
The penultimate set
of eighteen aerial pictures taken in 2000 are now in the Aerial
More Aerial pics from

Some new pictures for
a change. Yesterday afternoon the sun appeared after a very dull
and wet morning, and I was allowed out for a fairly short trip in the car
with my camera. I'd originally planned to follow the Mountain Road
past Bungalow and to Guthrie's, but there was still very thick cloud over
the hills so I diverted along the Brandywell Road and down to Injebreck,
ending up at St Luke's Church again, the scene of my accident last week.
All went OK though this time!

Here's the start of
the new project while I can't get out for new Isle of Man pictures.
During the early 2000s I started experimenting with aerial photography
around the island while flying light aircraft, using my first proper digital
camera, the Fuji MX-1500 and then the Fuji 4900 & S602. The pictures
will be in their own part of the 'Aerial' section of the website, shown
in the original format as shot by the camera and in sets taken on individual
There are now 24 new
Aerial pictures in the Aerial
2000 gallery. Flight Date 19/1/00
I decided yesterday
morning that as I hadn't posted any new IOM pictures since our trip across
to England in early December I should do something about it!
So I thought a fairly
short trip to the Baldwin valleys and Injebreck might be a good idea, unfortunately
things took a bit of a bad turn, but more about that later.

After taking the pictures
at St Luke's church I stupidly managed to trip over a low and rather concealed
wire, landing rather heavily on a pile of rocks which winded me.
After recovering I carried on with the other pictures but was in some pain
and ended up visiting the A&E section at Nobles Hospital in the afternoon
and was diagnosed with probable broken ribs and advised to take it easy
for at least a few weeks, which will affect the taking of new pictures.
A stroll around Laxey
this afternoon. Nikon D7100 2/12/21
