15th February
A set of pictures taken yesterday afternoon on a circular walk from Port Erin to the Calf Sound, returning via Cregneash.  The walk was 5.5 miles long, going from sea level up to nearly 500ft - twice!  I spent 2.5 hours on it, stopping to take pictures regularly.  Panasonic TZ200  14/2/19
 
13th February
Aerial pictures from two flights on Monday morning, operating from either side of the Gob ny Rona headland south of Ramsey.  The photography was made a little difficult by needing to operate over the sea and looking into a low winter sun which was glinting off the water and wet sands.
DJI Phantom 4 Pro  11/2/19
A few final pictures at Port Lewaigue and Port e Vullen, cropped for a wider perspective view.

Aerial pictures of the beach at Laxey and one from Clay Head yesterday morning.   DJI Spark  10/2/19
 
10th February
Some aerial photography of the old Honey Hill Farm buildings, not far from Creg-ny-Baa.  This is not your usual abandoned upland Tholtan although still at over 700 ft above sea level, but was taken over by the Water Board in the 1940s to protect supplies running into the reservoirs below.
DJI Spark  10/2/19
 
Following on from the aerial photography at Honey Hill, I continued around the Glen Roy road for some ground level pictures.

8th February
A visit yesterday afternoon to the beach at Lhiannag, between Peel and Kirkmichael.  The path down had been closed for quite a while due to landslips (the whole cliff area is very unstable), but a new path is now available, although it was very muddy yesterday!  Panasonic TZ200 7/2/19
An aerial view of the area taken in August 2018.
 
It was quite a stormy day today with gale force winds and some big waves.   These pictures were taken from the Port Jack area early afternoon, a little while after high tide so the promenade 'splash over' had subsided a bit.  The 'Ben my Chree' to and from heysham was cancelled and the road between Summerhill and Port Jack closed for a while due to the waves - didn't stop some people though!   Nikon D7100  8/2/18
 
4th February
A visit to the wildlife park on Saturday afternoon.   Panasonic TZ200  2/2/19
 
During a stroll into the Curragh just outside the park we saw a few of the wild wallabies that live here.
 
There are four new Aircraft pictures in Aircraft 2019 Pt 1  -  Panasonic TZ200 2/2/19

A walk on Peel Hill.  Panasonic TZ200  1/2/19
 
2nd February
Yesterday was the ancient Celtic festival of Imbolc, the mid point between Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox and marking the start of Spring.  In later years it was transformed into the Christian St Bridgit's Day,  and interesting conversion from the Celtic Goddess Brigid or in Manx Gaelic Breeshey or Vreeshey.  Here are some pictures of Snowdrops springing up at Braddan Old Church.  The original Christian Keeil here probably dated back to around 
400 AD although the present building was constructed in the 1700s.  The site was probably a Celtic one before Christianity arrived on the island.
