More pictures from Tuesday
afternoon! After Milntown we had a fairly quick visit to the Wildlife
Park, but these pictures were taken on the way home from there, driving
via the Druidale Road from Ballaugh and stopping just above Tholt-y-Will
Plantation for these two panoramas. DJI Spark 15/9/20
Continuing our journey
home, we stopped at Injebreck Reservoir for some more aerial pictures.
The almost complete calm allowed some great reflections.

After visiting a couple
of shops in Ramsey on Tuesday morning, we headed onwards to Milntown House
for lunch, followed by a stroll around the gardens. Lots of great
flowers and an amazing number of butterflies, mostly Red Admirals but a
few others as well. Panasonic TZ200 15/9/20

There are four new Railway
pictures in Railways 2020

These pictures are from
a walk up Tholt-y-Will Glen on Sunday afternoon, starting from the car
park near the converted chapel, then walking up through the glen with a
stroll around the Corrody and Creggans tholtans at the top. The map
says it's a bit over 300ft from bottom to top, although the GPS suggested
that we'd climbed and descended between 500 and 600ft over the whole walk.
On the way back down we detoured to visit the Tholt-y-Will tholtan.
It was a strange day for weather, with cloud covering the hilltops and
low visibilty in fog on the Mountain Road, but bright sunshine in Tholt-y-Will.

A set of pictures taken
in Castletown late on Monday afternoon. It had been a generally dull
and wet day, but after I had left a meeting at the airport it appeared
to be brightening up, so rather than sit in queues of traffic around Douglas
at rush hour, I had a short stroll around the town for pictures.

We had a visit to the
Wildlife Park on Sunday afternoon, some pictures from the park and the
Curragh with a panorama on the way there,
a couple of pictures
on the way home and some evening shots from home. Nikon D7100 6/9/20

Three new Aerial pictures
of the 1944 Royal Navy radar station at Ronaldsway have been added to the
ATC 1940s pages.
Ronaldsway must have
been one of the first airfields in Britain to have been equipped with radar.
Quite a large selection
of pictures taken yesterday afternoon on a walk down the Dhoon Glen from
the car park to the beach and back. It's quite a steep
descent, dropping around
600 feet over a lateral distance of only just over half a mile and of course
you have to climb back up again!

Yesterday was the first
day of meteorological Autumn and was warm and often sunny, in contrast
to today has started wet and windy. We took our house-guest Maggie
for a walk up to the Centenary Park at the top of Birch Hill and I took
a few pictures in the park. It's a lovely area with some areas cut
but many others allowed to grow naturally with lots of wild flowers according
to the seasons. Panasonic TZ200 1/9/20
The park has been developed
by volunteers since around 2016 and I've taken aerial pictures for the
Woodland Trust since then. I'm starting with
four of these showing
the park over the years. DJI Phantom 2 Vision+, Phantom 4 Pro &
