Often referred to as "The Jewel in the Irish Sea", the Isle of Man is renowned for its natural beauty throughout our 220 square miles.
The Island is the only entire jurisdiction in the world to be awarded a UNESCO Biosphere status.
With such a prestigious award comes the promise of wonderful scenery as well as a mass of bird and wildlife.
The Island’s dramatic, rugged cliffs and varied coastline, plus the rolling moorland and hills through to wide flat plains and sandy or pebbly beaches, all contribute to an environment that is perfect for the adventurous and enthusiastic photographer of all levels and abilities.
The night sky photographers amongst us may enjoy a total of twenty six "Dark Sky Discovery' sites around our amazing Island.
