About

Welcome to this new venture my name is John Turton and i am an enthusiastic amatuer Photographer who is lucky enough to live on a beautiful Island here in the middle of the Irish Sea.
The name of this Island is the Isle of Man.
(Ellan Vannin) in Manx.
The Island is the Roadrace Capital of the World and famous throughout for the 37 3/4 mile long mountain Circuit where motorcyclists and sidecar Racers compete on closed roads at speeds of up to 200 mph and the fastest average lap speed of over 131 mph.
Apart from Motorsport the island is awash with history and has its own goverment Tynwald which has been going for over 1000 years.
