ABC- ARCHED ARCHIVES

Today we look through the Arch window

ABC - Wednesday
Brought to you by the letter A


The beach trip is just not going as planned. Rain, rain and more rain. We even have a very light dusting of snow atop the mountain. Not enough for a fabulous image for the blog though. So back to the beach and this week's letter which is A. I give you Arched Archives. No really difficult to work out why is it. Just in case it it. Those are "arches" and this is an "archive" image



I have  shown you this place before as a black and white and as a colour version showing more of the pathway and less of the beach. Told you before this is a hidden gem. You have too walk a way along the beach to get here(the left arch leads to Ramsey) but it's really worth it. You can wade or jump the stream and head towards Maughold(right arch)well you could if it was safe. Remember tides come in as well as go out. Behind me leads the path up to one of the little glens we have here leading out of Ramsey and on the road to Douglas. There is a pretty picnic area up there and as I have said before a lovely place for the photographer. Very low light though so not forgiving for a snapshot. Rabbits have been known to do whatever rabbits do here, but reports of the phantom escaped wallaby of Ramsey are false! Or are they?



So that's it round 4, week 1. To join see the lady with letters Mrs Nesbitt and others too. The facebook experiment continues see you there. Click the logo. Just for fun.



Mrsnesbitt's place: ABC Wednesday..Round 4! Did you spot one or two TV programme refs. today?

Thank you Olivier. You jumped in before I could add my comment. Many thanks to everyone for my 300th post yesterday.

George said...

This is a good beginning of a new round of the alphabet even if it is an archived photo. Hopefully the weather will be more cooperative in the coming week.

I've spent many a hot summers day splashing about in that stream. Must have been a good few years ago though, we don't have hot summers anymore!!
How Manx am I? I was born here, I've lived here all my life. I'm Manx.

Michele said...

OOooo.... I love how you framed the beach through these arches... WOW... impressive photo!

Ackworth born said...

lovely to peep through the arches - I bet there's been more rabbits doing what rabbits do behind these arches!

Liz said...

Well, i got Playschool!

That's a super photo.

Babooshka said...

It would be the vandalised window now though Liz
wouldn't it.

Fotosekken said...

I love both the photo and the view! =o)

anthonynorth said...

Beautifully framed. There's something marvellous about visiting a beach this time of year. So refreshing.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

A slightly belated congrats for your 300th post. I just realized that I missed my own 2 year blog anniversary. *strikes forehead*

Anne-Berit said...

Very nice A-post!

dulce said...

It seems a lovely spot!

Sue said...

I walk there often Babs, not as hidden as it was now you have shown it. Pretty framing.

I'm Manx.

Very interesting post you have here.. The photo is so great!

My "A" photos are posted here and here. Please hop on by if you have time. Happy Wednesday!

david mcmahon said...

That is such an evocative image.

lisaschaos said...

I love arches! No matter in nature or man made arches are just cool!

ramblingwoods.com said...

Oh..nothing like rain to spoil a trip..I am sorry about that. I do like these arches....

Grace and Bradley said...

I love how you have been able to catch both the detail of wall and the scene on the beach. Very nice.

magiceye said...

the arched windows to the vast ocean!

so beautiful

raf said...

Love it, Baboosh! You have caught a slice of the Mediterranean here with the composition, color and light in this image. Pulls you right in. Beautiful!

gogouci said...

Beautiful scenery. Wish this was a view from my windows.

Chuck Pefley said...

Probably not very Manx -:) Then again ... perhaps. Congratulations on cresting the number 300. It's all down hill from here. Well, not really. Some days it's simply fun while others it's kind of like work. Trust all is well in your world, though I was shocked to see the £ at $1.40 today. Good time to visit, if only I could afford it.

photowannabe said...

Perfect arches and I don't mind if they are from the archives or not.

Reader Wil said...

I love photos framed in arches. I often try it myself. You are planning to go to face book, aren't you? Well I am on facebook only because my daughters want me there, but I don't like it very much. It's chaotic at least where I am.

Sally said...

Im so thrilled you understand the geology of the NSW coast! Very impressive indeed.

naturglede said...

I love the view through the Arch window. Good choise:)

Miss_Yves said...

I imagine a phantom behind these arches . Amazing shot!

spacedlaw said...

Nice picture. Why can't you eat artichokes?

Life with Kaishon said...

Very pretty archways! I love it!

Deslilas said...

Nice arcade or dice arcane.

tr3nta said...

just returned from vacation... happy 2009...

chanpheng said...

Nice arches - glad they are stone arches and not foot arches!

May you reach the letter Z in 2009!

aishaholley said...

Great shot, Babooshka. This place looks beautiful! Love the ocean view.

RuneE said...

You put me in the right frame of mind.

Lily Hydrangea said...

Love looking through this archway & seeing the lovely colors!
Great Photo for today's theme.

Marc said...

Arches are often a good subject. I like this one because of the many layers it contains. A pleasure to look at. Congrats on your 300th! And still so good looking :-)

Old Wom Tigley said...

Excellent A post....
Tom

Lene said...

Great ABC A! It seems like å wonderful place to be :)

I hope for the sun to shine at your beach trip. No beachtrip here yet - lots of snow ;)

Jay said...

Yet another part of the island that we didn't see when we visited! I'll make a point of looking for those arches next time, though!

Peter said...

You are corageous to go for a fourth round! But you make a very good start! Arch, archives...! :-)

Will you reach the end of the alphabet before moving?

marley said...

It makes me come over all Cockney and want to sing 'Underneath the arches...' lol

Mamapippa said...

Very good photo, have a nice day !

Babooshka said...

Hello Mr Wiigger

Peter this round yes, but the next, possibly a no.

Thanks all.

mannanan said...

Very nice shot. I love this walk through the arch.

Rose said...

A very interesting perspective! Are the arches part of an old ruin?
Congratulations on your 300th post!

roentarre said...

You have some interesting perspective using window framing

angela said...

This is great. There's always a desire to see what's on the other side...

Mo said...

ooh love this one too.

Dragonstar said...

I love this! The arches and the colours are perfect!

Lisa Wilson said...

I love this photo! Oh and congrats on your 300th post!

Celeste said...

Wow - play school! I had completely forgotten about watching that until I saw your post - thanks for stirring the 'grey matter' into life :)

Susie of Arabia said...

This is a really cool photo - I love the way arches frame the beach beyond. Nice capture!

Tumblewords said...

Beautiful! The beach is one of my favorite places.

Lindab said...

I'm afraid Playschool jumped out as me as well. A whole generation marked for life by that programme...

interesting composition, as if I am looking through a pair of glasses.
