No new pictures taken for this month today, but a whole new section for the website!  I'm re-editing the aerial panoramas that I've taken since 
the start of 2017 and placing them in a new subsection of the general aerial pictures.  The thumbnails are in a larger format, 850 pixels wide that 
should fit the whole image easily onto all computer screens.  Click on the thumbnail and it will take you to the large version, scaled at 800 pixels high which you can then scroll from side to side to see the panorama in more detail.  Use your browser 'Back' button to return to your starting point 
on the index page, the 'Index' tab will take you to the top of that page.  So far there are 21 panoramas from 2017 and 40 from the first six months of 2018.
This is the new thumbnail size, use the link below to head to the Aerial Pictures section.

The above picture was taken before the current (2019) 5 Km drone flying exclusion zone around Ronaldsway came into force.  Nevertheless, it was still conducted only after prior approval and clearance by ATC at Ronaldsway.  Guidance on drone flying in the Isle of Man can be found here:

Aerial photography from three locations yesterday afternoon, focussing on The Ayres.  This is apparently the newest part of the Isle of Man at around 5,000 years old,band is technically known as a 'raised beach', indeed from Blue Point you can see the old cliff line running inland.  It is an area of grass covered duneland and designated as a nature reserve.   DJI Phantom 4 Pro  6/6/19

These pictures were 'Plan B' from yesterday afternoon.  'Plan A' had been to walk around Sartfell to Glion Kiark for some ground level and aerial photography, but the cloud was sitting on the upper slopes of the hill and producing some light rain so I continued on the coast at Lhiannag, still a bit grey there but at least no rain.  I walked down to the beach for some pictures of the rocks at low tide, then some aerial pictures from the tops.  I've started with an aerial Panorama though, to give an overall picture of the area.  Panasonic TZ200 & DJI Spark  13/6/19
Down at beach level.
Some wild flower close up pictures from the walk back up from the beach.
Taking a camera into the air for some shots you just can't get from ground level.
Finally, just a couple of pictures on the walk back to the main road.

I was fortunate to be invited to attend a charity 'open day' yesterday on the Crogga Valley Railway at Crogga House, in support of Alder Hey children's hospital and Rebecca House and took some aerial and ground level pictures.  Most of the aerial ones were before too many people had arrived as it gave me more freedom as to where I could fly.  Many thanks to house owner Chris Beauman and the CVR operating crew.

Braddan old church and the Celtic crosses inside.  The present day building dates from 1773 although it is believed that parts of the structre were from the older church built in the 12th centure on an even older Keeil site.  Inside there are preserved Celtic crosses dating from 600 to 1265 AD.  The church was replaced by the current Braddan church (just across the road) in around 1876.  Panasonic TZ200 26/6/19

A ground level panorama taken from the edge of Chibbanagh Plantation at Braaid, looking across the central valley of the Isle of Man.  This view is said to have inspired the painter John Martin, for his huge  'Plains of Heaven' work exhibited in the Tate Gallery, London.  Martin lived the latter part of his life in the Isle of Man and died here in 1854 and is buried in Braddan Old Church Cemetary.
