Flooding in Ramsey.

On Friday 3rd of January the Island experienced extreme high tides which coincided with low pressure and also high winds which caused Island wide flooding. The main shopping street in Ramsey was under water and the shops suffered severe flooding. It was hard to see where the harbour ended and the road started as at high tide it all became one big harbour. It was very surreal and I have never experienced anything like it before.

A Very Friendly Sheep.

Walking up to Maughold Lighthouse from Maughold Church, we passed a field with this really friendly sheep. He was so friendly that it was difficult to take a picture due to him trying to put his head up to the camera.

Malew Church Organ Pipes

A different view of the metal pipes on the church organ. This organ dates from 1907 and was built by Moses Morgan of Douglas and replaces the smaller Hewitt organ which was moved to St Mark’s church.

Ballaugh Old Church.

This lovely old church is St Mary de Ballaugh and is situated at the Cronk in Ballaugh on the site of an ancient keeill.
The old church was lengthened in 1717  and within the church is an 11th century runic cross, the only one found in the parish. The entrance is renowned for its leaning gate pillars. In 1832 a new church was built 1 mile away and the old church was abandoned because of its bad state of repair. These days, even though the new church is the official parish church, this quaint old church has been restored and is again used regularly for divine worship.

Abandoned.

When out taking photos of an old derelict farmhouse up in the hills round Sulby, we came across this very small, abandoned lamb. Luckily we managed to track down the farmer and he came and collected the lamb and he said that it was deffinately abandoned and would have died if we hadn’t have found it and let him know. It was so cute.

Sunny Day in Derbyhaven.

Today was such a beautiful day, it was like spring, calm and sunny, too nice to miss by staying in so we went for a walk at Derbyhaven from the Flying Club, round the back of the airport and back to the car.
Took these images with my Nikon D40 using a Nikon 18-55mm lens.
