  1. A stunningly beautiful place, replete with mountains, beaches, waterfalls, castles, ruins, fantastic sunsets and friendly people. Great place to visit. All shot with the Olympus EM-5 and 12-40mm F/2.8, with one or two from the Olympus 60mm F/2.8.

    AW.. some really nice captures. You're right, it is a special place. Lots of contrasts in a small(ish) island. Here's a few from my visit in 2012, all with the em- 5

    I've never seen a waterwheel shadow like that before. Cool.

    Lovely! You've just put the Isle of Man on my must-see places list.

    Sigh. So much world, so little time.

    I like your style. Great captures. You have convinced me the 12-40 can do anything I ask and more. Thanks for this set.

    Next time you go to the IOM ask a local to show you the 'glens', these are small deep ravines along the coast and they are magical. The IOM is lapped by the Gulf Stream so the ground is at a pretty constant 50°F or so, there are no gritting lorries on the IOM as any snow immediately melts. In mid winter on the roads you can have gales, freezing temperatures and horizontal snow, go into some of the 'Glens' and it's permanent Springtime with flowers and insects year round, they are so deep and usually forested that the wind doesn't get to the bottom of them, the ground heat builds this still air temperature to a remarkable 60°F or so, truly magical.
