lush fields on the Isle of Man

A small cemetery between fields somewhere on the Isle of Man.
Seeing all the beautiful landscapes on this island it is very hard to believe that it is mainly known for motor races…

This was taken on a walk from Port St Mary to the “Calf of Man” along the famous Raad Ny Foillan walk.

By the way: I had two cameras with me, the Minolta Dynax 9 loaded with Fujichrome Velvia 50 with which I took the picture above and a small digital Panasonic Lumix FX8.
Hre’s a shot of the same area taken with that camera:

Interesting, how different the colours are, - nothing really objective about photography…

Coastline, Isle of Man, originally uploaded by laurenz.

You can walk all around the island. I didn’t have the time to do so, but tried a walk around the Southern tip and another one from Ballaglass to Ramsey.
This photo was taken near Ramsey.

Macro Shot of a Spider
A spider net all but barred my way on the Isle of Man (obviously, no one had walked there for a while), so I took a shot of the spider in its net. (Panasonic Lumix FX8)

Laxey Wheel, Isle of Man
Maybe the most photographed tourist attraction of the Isle of Man, this is one of the wheels in the old mining town of Laxey used for lifting huge quantities of water.

Please excuse the somewhat unusual perspective, but I do not have access toimage editing software while travelling.
