Ellan Vanin is the E


Another river walk


As usual I try and educate you in a little Manx, the once fluently spoken language of the island I live on, the Isle of Man. Don't study the image to hard to focus on the river or the foliage for the E. It is the big picture you should concentrate on, as a whole. In fact I could have chosen any unused island photo for this one. E's are good, a great letter to use, as there are so many Manx words beginning with E. I digress. Ellan Vannin is in fact the Manx name of the Isle of Man. Tune in next week for more crazy Manx words.

Hello.
Love the black & white shot...very magical. I have to say too, Ellan Vannin sounds a lot more romantic than plain old Isle Of Man (lol)

I knew that the Isle of Man has cats without tails, but didn't know that once "Manx" was spoken !

Ellan Vannin? Does it mean Isle of Man in Manx? Just guessing here. :)

EG Wow, yep it is the Manx for Isle of Man. Only way I get to see the island, your photos. Keep it up the awesomeness.

Manx? I did not know about this language! Your photos are lovely and you educate at the same time... Ellan Vannin is a melodic name for a beautiful island.
