6th November
With high pressure and light winds forecast for yesterday I had planned to do some aerial photography in the afternoon.  However the day turned out to be rather dull and grey, with very low cloud affecting the island, so 'Plan B' turned out to be a walk around the Ballaugh Curraghs wetlands area, which was indeed very wet!  I've been fascinated by this area for years and over ten years ago did a special Island Images feature on the wetland through the year which can be found here. Although most of the time yesterday the weather was rather dull, the sun did try and break through for a while, giving some lovely soft light effects.

7th November
After a couple of rather dull days, the sun broke out around the middle of the day yesterday and after fulfilling a couple of commitments I though there was still just enough time to get a quick bit of aerial photography done so long as I didn't travel to far from home.  Looking at the likely sun angles I decide to go to Keristal, just to the north of Port Soderick.  The sun was a bit low but did highlight the rugged cliffs in the area.  DJI Phantom 4 Pro 6/11/20
8th November
These pictures were taken on a visit to Ramsey yesterday afternoon as the light changed from a (sometimes) sunny afternoon through to dusk.

10th November
Two 'out of my window views'.  The one on the left was taken yesterday afternoon and was about as good as it got over the last couple of days, you can just see the lower part of Douglas Head. Most of the time were were in the clouds and could hardly see across to the other side of the road!  On the right is this morning, can't see the mountains of north Wales quite, but a vast improvement anyway.  Panasonic TZ200 9/11/20 & 10/11/20
11th November
These pictures were taken yesterday afternoon on a visit to the Calf Sound for lunch at the cafe.  Overall it was a rather dull day with occasional rain showers passing through, but a few brighter spells as well.  Panasonic TZ200 & Samsung Galaxy S8  10/11/20
13th November
Just a single picture from yesterday morning, looking down to Douglas Head and the lighthouse, with a bright sun glinting off the sea.

A few pictures captured yesterday lunchtime on the way back home from Douglas, alongside the River Glass at Tromode. Panasonic TZ200
15th November
I t was generally rather a dull day yesterday, with strong to gale force winds and heavy rain showers passing through.  I had a quick stroll around the Battery Pier and Douglas Head Lighthouse areas in the early afternoon and took these shots.  Panasonic TZ200 14/11/20
16th November
These pictures were taken in Castletown yesterday morning at the time of a particularly high tide.  Nikon D7100 15/11/20
19th November
After a morning with low cloud, gale force winds and horizontal rain, things improved around lunchtime and I headed across to Niarbyl hoping for some nice lighting before sunset.  Unfortunately it had clouded over again before I arrived there and there was still a very strong wind blowing, but I did see the sun set!

20th November
Yesterday afternoon the strong to gale force winds we had been experiencing recently died down to a gentle breeze and I set off to Ramsey intending to carry out some aerial photography.  Unfortunately, almost as soon as I arrived it started to rain, which grounded me!  However I did get a couple of ground shots before the rain started.   Panasonic TZ200 19/11/20
21st November
The weather wasn't great yesterday with heavy rain and strong winds in the morning but it improved a little by the middle of the day when we went for lunch at the Milntown House Cafe on the outskirts of Ramsey.  Afterwards we went into town and I took these shots which are mainly local fishing vessels.

23rd November
After a couple of weeks of unsuitable weather for drone flying, yesterday morning was bright and sunny and the wind had died down to a fresh breeze, so I set out for Port St Mary to carry out some aerial photography with the Phantom 4.  One problem that I've noticed with drone photography at these latitudes over the winter lighting season is that the sun is always at a low angle (at the moment not getting above 15 degrees over the horizon), which from ground level normally results in  good images.  However, from the air at low altitudes this produces high levels of light on buildings but low levels on the usually considerably darker ground which makes for a very 'contrasty' end picture.  One solution is to shoot multiple pictures at varying exposures (AEB) and then combine on the computer into one picture, which I have done on several of the ones below.  DJI Phantom 4 Pro 22/11/20
Moving to a second flying location to the west of Port St Mary, from a little stony beach on the shoreline of Perwick Bay.
26th November
A sunny and calm morning after the previous day had been very windy with torrential rain for a time in the afternoon.  I took the little Spark drone to Laxey and the first flight was from the beach and close to high tide.  DJI Spark 25/11/20
Moving further up the valley to the area of the Great Laxey Mine, to take some shots of the 'Lady Isabella', the world famous Laxey Wheel.
Moving back down the valley to take a look at the 'other' Laxey waterwheel, the Lady Evelyn.  Originally constructed in 1865 to serve the Snaefell Mine much further up the valley, it was sold to a company in Cornwall when the mine closed in 1910 and only returned to the island for rebuilding 2003.  It is by the Laxey River in the public garden area that was formerly the washing floors for the Great Laxey Mine and utilised several water wheels to power machinery.
27th November
The nice weather from Wednesday morning at Laxey continued into the afternoon and I set off for Niarbyl with the Spark drone hoping to get some aerial shots before sunset, which is now only just past 4 o'clock.  Quite different weather than the last time I was there on the 18th!

Starting with some ground level shots with the TZ200 walking to Traie Vane
The Aerial pictures
Some shots with my Galaxy S8 phone walking back to Niarbyl, doing an amazing job in the very low light levels.
Back to the TZ200 with the ISO pushed up to 1600 for these final shots as it's getting dark.
28th November
A couple of shots taken from my front window yesterday morning when the mountains of Snowdonia around 70 miles away in north Wales were 
visible across the Irish Sea.  Panasonic TZ200 27/11/20
