Camera Obscura Douglas Isle of Man

This is the famous Camera Obscura on Douglas Head. There is no power involved in making it work, its all done using 11 lenses which gives 11 moving colour pictures of the surrounding headland. It was opened in the 1890’s and was once considered a popular form of fun and entertainment.

Made the most of the sun shining and went for a walk round Scarlett, took this image on the way back to the car of the backdrop from the old disused quarry.
