Manx Wallpapers

The background of the Desktop screen on my Windows PCs is generally set to display landscape themes. There’s a whole range of them, and other themes, available to download and use.

Today, I noticed from a Microsoft blog, that there is now a landscape theme devoted to pictures from my birthplace, the Isle of Man. Taken by Mark Wallace, there are some suitably moody shots of Peel Castle, the ruins of St. Trinian’s church, the Calf of Man and more.

They’ve been installed and serve as a reminder of my original home.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Never been there, but the pictures certainly are beautiful. Is there a Manx cat (or any other breed) in your house 🙂
