Not a solar eclipse but the name of what was the world's largest private yacht until April 2013 when it was eclipsed (pun intentional) by the 'Azzam'. Seen here at the world famous Isle of Capri it is owned by a wealthy Russian businessman, Roman Abramovich. Boys and their toys! It even has its own helicopter pad and looks like something out of a James Bond film! More details here:

The location of the ship s giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the ship. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice ay.

Absolutely breath taking, and larger than anything I've seen in Monte Carlo. I like the view with the doors allowed for loading provisions. I took some photos from Anacapri, I wonder if the peak on the left was my vantage point for the photo King Farouk's Last Abode?"

I heard of this rich guys toy in the sea but never seen it, wow it as you say looks like it should be on a movie set.
Great Pov, well managed, Tfs,
Trust you are well and enjoying Turkey.

Hello Chris, I was surprized that there was eclipse in Capri but it is this yacht. These russian boys have nice toys indeed. It is huge! The other boats looks so tiny in comparison. Wonderful rocks of Capri.

Nice composition with as focal point this luxury yacht, beautiful light and colors with this blue sea in particular, interesting landscape with cliffs and waves in the opposite corner.

Cet étalage de luxe et d'argent ne me ravit pas vraiment mais ta photo est de belle qualité.

I wonder if he watches Chelsea matches on there; no doubt it has all mod cons. As you say 'boys and their toys'. You have composed the shot well; I like the glimpse of the wake in the foreground. Ideally exposed and with excellent colours and sharpness.

superb shot of this piece of decadent luxury. It looks huge and this image gives us a real idea of its size and scale. If you got it flaunt it they say - how many boys would like this yacht and their own little football club to play with. Excellent capture.

Il y en a qui ont plus peur de la fin du monde que la fin de la semaine. Le propriétaire ne doit pas compter son argent dans son porte feuille le soir avant de se coucher.Quel beau bateau tout de même tout en aérodynamisme.

Hello Chris ,
That spoils somewhat the setting ... but this white motor yacht is quite beautiful .
But why such a so large boat for a few days on it ?
Thanks for the share
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-19 6:56
nice holiday picture and taken from interesting POV. I gather you were on another boat, but it looks a little bit like taken from the middle of the sea. The rocks provide very nice settings - it must have been amazing cruise.
Nice colors, light and well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Fantastic and impressive big yacht, Chris, and the presence near capri, match to the common knowlegde about the wealth of the people live and visit the beautiful island.
Great photo, technically speaking, the blue sea is looking great under the bright daylight. Also, fine DOF and the big rocks are a stunning sight.

your shot of the beautiful bay with the boat is wonderful with excellent clarity and sharpness,
by the way,the yacht is not bad ...:)

nice the view of the private yacht of Roman Abramovich with the isle of Capri to be a a great backdrop of the photo.I like the clarity of the image as enhanced from the brilliant light of the day with the beauty of it to be superb.

Once more I am curious from where you take the capture, having visited Capry, know is not from a pier, must be from a boat
Good composition framing the ship with the hills
The super yatch owned now by a Sheikh, is of course the main atraction for color contrast and activity round him
Very well done
Note: Dont like very big ships, they spoiled the best views, not this that add interest wherever it is
fabbs99 (15815) 2014-03-19 22:57
Awesome natural colors in this image of the sea and the white yacht looks beautiful against the rocky hills.Very well captured with good lighting.Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

How did they get their fortune in a short time after the wall breaking ? This is a mystery
Roman was the former governor of the Chukotka Autonomous District
in 1992 he was accused of stealing a train carrying millions of gallons of oil on the route Ukhta - Moscow ...(Wiki sources)
Good point of view on the ship with a good lights ambiance

That thing is eclipsing the town at the shore! It looks more like a frigate than a yacht, you caught it from a nice angle.
