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.

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.

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 TZ200  17/1/19
 
 
21st January
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.
 
 
24th January
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.  DJI Phantom 4 Pro  23/1/19
 
 
29th January
A visit to the Injebreck area late yesterday afternoon, around sunset.   Nikon D7100  28/1/19
 
 
30th January
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.
 
Snow by the Mountain Road at the Brandywell Road junction and Bungalow.
