Milner Tower, Bradda Head, Isle of Man

Landscape and Classic TT Photographs from Isle of Man August 2017

While on the Isle of Man recently for a family event, we took some timeout to visit the sights and do some hiking (well, gentle stroll for me due to my recovery from illness).  It’s a bit odd for me not to have many pictures from the Isle of Man considering I lived there for 7.5 years! Pictures are from Peel Beach, a stroll from Bradda Glen up to Milner tower on Bradda Head, a reasonably gentle cliff top walk…

Paris – April 2017 – Easter Break

I’ve had the fortune to visit Paris on a number of occasions, until recently, always either destination for, or passing through some band related trip, so it was great to return as a tourist and spend some time in the city.

Kolbuszowa Folk Museum Poland

Folk Museum Kolbuszowa – Poland

In July of this year I went on a long weekend concert trip with Regent Brass to attend the Summer Trumpet School at Kolbuszowa in Poland.  During our time off between rehearsals, mixing with the students and staff at the summer school, concerts.. and the odd trip to sample the local beer (and homemade vodkas), we were given a tour of a local attraction, the Folk Museum. The weather was changeable that morning (sunny, cloudy, rainy, thunder showers..), but it…
