RAMSEY PASTELS

Last night's evening sundown, Ramsey along the quay. Thats what you can see in between the lamposts, sail masts.

The weather has improved, it must know we're weeks from the TT Road Races. This year the good news is there will be no 5.am pratise laps. When you live as near to the course as I do, the last thing you need is the not so dulcet sounds of hundreds of motorbikes whizzing past at ferocious speeds that early.

I sympathise with anyone submitting tax declerations this month, so do we here. The Isle of Man, isn't part of the UK, or the Britsh Isles it's a Crown Dependancy. Unlike the UK ,where only self employed people sumbit tax declerations, here, we are responsible for submitting our own. That's explains why the island is full of accountants.

It's astonishing!
I guess Kate Bush would love this landscape for one of her amazing videos.

babooshka said...

I agree Qunitatantino, but i can't keep calling them all cloudbusting or the big sky.

great sky - whilst it would indeed be nice to see it without the lampposts it would be very difficult to remove them without spoiling the picture.

I thought the IOM was part of the "British Isles"
The UK of course is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland - Great Britain being England, Scotland & Wales.
The British Isles though is surely a geographical rather than political area and consists of the UK, Republic of Ireland, IOM and the Channel Islands.
That has always been my understanding - I'm always miffed-off by Americans (in particular) who refer to England when they mean the UK. Despite my surname I always list my nationality as "British".

Jules said...

Great shot!!!

Your bottle brush photo made me very nostalgic - I had a number in my garden in Australia - they really do grow like weeds at home. I guess your more temperate weather allows them to grow there!!!

raf said...

Gorgeous photo with great contrasts. Like the masts in the foreground. All the best.

Rambling Round said...

What a dramatic sky! Don't believe I have ever seen one quite like it.

Angie said...

Hi,
That is just absolutely stunning! We spent our honeymoon on the Isle of Man and we still have many happy memories of the island.I can still remember going on a coach trip and crossing a bridge where the driver stopped and refused to go on till we had all said good morning to the fairies.I wonder if that still happens? I hope it does.

mharia said...

wow ... beautiful catch! so much drama, love it! :)

JAMJARSUPERSTAR said...

Lovely shot once again - considering that a video for either Cloudbustnig or the Big Sky would take about 5 minutes each, all wonderful shots of the sky could link together in little bits to create a wonderful video!
Seriously though, I love it when the sky is like this. Unfortunately it rains so much here that it's very rare we have a sky like this!
Ciao
