Wildflowers, Fields and Sea Near Laxey, Isle of Man: Travel Snapshot

Sunny wild flowers dominate the forefront of this picture taken up in the hills near Laxey, Isle of Man. Fields of various shades of green gently slope down towards the calm Irish Sea. The sky is bright blue, with a few grey clouds signifying rain is due. But for now this scene is perfect.

    Wow that is a really spectacular photo you have there! Thanks for posting that up! I had no idea that the Irish Sea was so dark in color. I guess I just thought it would be more blue like your sky.

    Very cool stuff, thanks, you are an amazing photographer.

    I sent you a tweet, but I would love to exchange e-mails when you have the time.
