A different view of Maughold Church

I took this photograph through a cut out on a Celtic Cross as thought it would give a different view of the church and church yard. This Church is one of my favourites due to the location as its very peaceful and its a pretty church.

Trees.

Took this photograph in a plantation and thought would try a different way of photographing the trees.

This Little Piggy……..

Saw these piglets on the way home the other day and couldn’t resist taking a few photos as were so cute.
This little pig checked his image in the reflection on his shelter before posing for his photograph. The piglets were playing in the sun and also digging in the soil with their snouts looking for food.

Lag Ny Keeilley.

Went for a walk to Lag Ny Keeilley on a misty spring day. We started out walking to Eary Cushlin and then continued passed on the footpath which takes you down to this tranquil and very peaceful remains of an old Early Christian Hermitage Site. The footpath is very precarious in places and is not for the faint hearted or unsure footed.
Once down there it is well worth the hard work as its such a calming, peaceful place to sit and take in your surroundings, would have been even better on a clearer day but still worth the walk.
On a clear day you can see Niarbyl Bay behind you and Peel Hill ahead of you and the only neighbours at this site are the sheep and the birds of prey we heard screeching over head.

BBQ Chicken!

Went for a walk on a beautiful hot and sunny day around the Cronk at Ballaugh and came across these chickens in a garden, I couldn’t resist this funny image of these two chickens relaxing on a hot day next to a BBQ gas cylinder.

Two Beautiful Horses.

Saw these beautiful horses in the field at the bottom of Andreas Curch Cemetary and couldn’t resist taking a photograph of them and they seemed to like posing for it too.

This image was taken using my new Sony Cybershot DSC-HX50 camera.

Telephone Box, Cregneash.

This telephone box has caused quite a stir amongst manx residents. This is one of six phone boxes which the local telephone company are planning to remove as they are “unprofitable”. These days with mobile phones, people dont need or very rarely need to use phone boxes but the sad thing with this particular one and the reason residents are upset is because this one is in the small working museum of Cregneash and is a very popular attraction to visitors for photographs as it is the tradional red colour which is becoming quite rare. The other unusual thing about this phone box is that for many years it used to be green which really did make it quite unique. The questions we all want the answers to now are………..will it stay or will it go and if it stays will it go back to green? Watch this space!

Thatched Cottage, Cregneash.

This is a traditional thatched manx stone cottage in the quaint village of Cregneash in the South of the Island. Cregneash is a mix of tiny private and working cottages as this is a working museum consisting of a farm which uses the original old farming machinery and horses to pull the ploughs, tiny working cottages demonstrating different skills used in the 19th and early 20th century such as thatching, spinning, weaving, wood turning, black- smithing and a range of skills used in the growing and preparation of food. There is a cafe and lovely trails and walks including farm trails and coastal footpaths. Cregneash is a fantastic day out for all the family and also for wonderful picturesque walks.
