ELLAN VANNIN, EAST QUAY, EVENING- ABC E

East Quay, Ramsey Harbour




Can you guess where I am standing to take the image? Hands up all those you said the Swing bridge. Right in the centre looking down onto the Sulby River which would flow behind me and out to the Irish Sea. That doesn't tell you what the E's are though. Well the E's are good ones, at least they are for me.


Evening - Get the first one out the way. Low tide Early(ooh another E) Evening. Got to say the light was beautiful and fluid so the camera was very happy.I could have taken many here for skywatch with pastels on show, and I of course I did.


East Quay - Looking back behind behind the other side of the bridge would be East Quay near Mona Street and the cranes I showed you last week. You usually see me refer to Ramsey Harbour or Harbour inlet in generic terms without breaking it down into specifics. On my right the walk would take you to the beach and Mooragh Park on the left the town.


Ellan Vannin - Isle of Man. That is it's Manx name and that's the island I live on, on the East coast too. I'll never be short of E's then for the as so many pubs bed and breakfast are called Ellan Vannin.


As some of you have noted I am having a very quiet blog week and having some time out doing some very mind numbing activities. Normal service soon. That's the eclectic mix tonight. Just noticed empty too for the river. For more Abc's see the lady with the letters Mrs N.

Without any doubt you're in love with "your World" and you make me eager to sail towards your landscapes.

Great E Babooshka...You know I walk along here every day and never tire of it at all no matter what time nor whether the tide is in or out. The wooden structure to the right, called a dolphin always amazes me especially when it is covered with numerous birds on the lookout for their next meal.

Cloudia said...

Glad to see this sight through your eyes! aloha-

Babooshka said...

Mannanan-Dolphin. I could of had that last week for D.

MartinC said...

Impressive! Glad you weren't standing in the water to take the first photo!

Reader Wil said...

Good morning Babooshka! Thanks for the photo and the information. Little by little we learn about your island! Have a nice week!

Carolina said...

As always, love your photo and your description. You live in a special and beautiful place.
And so many E's.

Tash said...

"E"lectronically delivered "e"xelent "e" post. I really like that view and how it fades off into a turn on the left. I like the old pilings too. these type of tides are so amazing to me. I still remember the first time I saw "beached" boats in a geography book in Jr. High - really facsinating.

Brett said...

Followed your lead to the city daily photo and have now set up my own! I've started using some of the shots from my blog mixed in with new stuff, it gives me a head start. the project has already got me looking at the town in a new light.

raf said...

And don't forget the ebb tide too. Excellent E post, Baboosh! Always love your water shots with boats.

Miss_Yves said...

Excellent angle of view...We can imagine the strenght of the stream, we seem to ear it...

Pierre said...

Belle lumiere.

RuneE said...

That was news to me and thank you for that. It has a definite Norse taste to it, especially the second part.

Jim said...

No sailing at low tide, I guess.

Bibi said...

I like the colors and the composition of your photo, and there's even movement to add to its beauty.

spacedlaw said...

Ella Vannin is a beautiful name.

nanak said...

great composition!

Pam said...

I have always liked the harbour at low tide. Excellent photograph.

Small City Scenes said...

I would say 'E' for Excellent. I learn so much on your blog.

Thanks for visiting my blog . I am having server problems and cannot always return a comment. MB

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

very nice capture of this setting and a great E. I enjoyed the narrative also. I feel like I am really getting to know your island.

Rose said...

This photo has such beautiful colors--the sky and clouds in the background provide a serene contrast to the rest of the picture.
I love the Manx name for your island!

Kim said...

I love the hint of pink in the sky. Great Job!

ramblingwoods.com said...

That is a wonderful photo..I like the ripples..I wonder why we all find the sound of the water so soothing. Maybe it goes back to our time in the womb...I just noticed that you have almost 500 followers. Wow. Have a good day... Michelle

Sue said...

Can we one the other way as pretty. Thanks.

Dragonstar said...

Great choice Babooshka. You're right about evening light - so beautiful.

nonizamboni said...

Great choices for E...I'm always interested in your Manx choices. Happy Wednesday!

Lindab said...

This looks like something from the 19th century (that's a compliment!)

Peter said...

Excellently Exposed E-Exercise Ensures Extra Emotion & Esteem!

B Squared said...

Looks like you have quite a difference between high and low tide.

Celeste said...

Hope you get through your mind-numbing activities quickly! What a plethora of 'E's for this week - great post.

loulee said...

Nice picture, I like Ramsey when it 'feels' like your picture. Another possible E, was the tide ebbing or flowing?

Per Stromsjo said...

I wonder what kind of temperature that water might be?

Jackie said...

Lovely photo there B - I really really do need to get to the Island sometime.

Mo said...

Lovely view. Think this is my favourite light as well. Evening is my preference. Not that I am good at getting up early regularly for those dawn shots.
Thanks for you comments on my blog award.
Havent heard back from Gary yet re pmt.

uncleawang said...

Lovely photo,I like it.Thanks for viewing my ABC and have a nice day.

Jay said...

I must come back to the Isle of Man soon. I loved it!

Your photos make me nostalgic.

angela said...

Yay I got it right! I'm really getting to know Ramsay..
Love the greys and blues in this and the sky fading to pink.
Very tranquil.

Janie said...

Beautiful and interesting photo, and plenty of E words!

Suzanne said...

This is quite lovely, thanks for sharing your wonderful isle.

Anna said...

Enjoyed your take on the letter E . My husband had his first pint on the Isle of Man. I have never been but must make a trip soon. We live near Liverpool so it's not so far away :)
