2nd December
Some aerial pictures taken on a rather dull morning yesterday, of two of the island's old churches  -  DJI Phantom 2 Vision+  1/12/16
St Runious, Marown Old Church. 
Originally dating from around 1200 AD, extended in 1754, replaced by the new church down in the valley but restored 
by volunteers in 1959 and used for occasional services.  The church has no electricity and if required is lit by candles.
St Trinian's
This chapel was built around the 14th century AD on the site of an older chapel.  There seems to have been some problems with keeping the roof on which were blamed on a local Buggane and eventually it was abandoned.  The Buggane of St Trinian's.

18th December
After spending the morning at Douglas for my book signing, I managed to squeeze in a couple of quadcopter flights in the afternoon before it got dark.  Unfortunately the sun had set behind South Barrule by the time I arrived at the chosen site, The Corrody and Creggans tholtans in the hills above Tholt-y-Will.  Acknowledgments to Ray Kelly's excellent book 'Manx Tholtans Vol 1 for filling me in on the history of the site.

28th December
I've been laid up with a cold since the last pictures above, but this morning went out with a camera for the first time in 10 days.  Had a nice stroll around Laxey in some morning sunshine and it wasn't even too cold!   Nikon D7100 28/12/16
