This is a capture from my last trip to Eskişehir.
The major of the city, Prof.Yılmaz Büyükerşen has created in the city many parks with different themes.
This one has a 1/1 model of a the famous sail ship Santa Maria of Christoph Colomb.
Visitors can go in and get informations about the life of Christoph Colomb and about sailing ships of 14th and 15th century. There is also a model of Noahs Arche there.
Eskişehir hala Türkiyenin en güzel ve en bakımlı şehirlerinden biri. Belediye başkanı Prof.Yılmaz Büyükerşen şehrin içinde çok sayıda tematik park yaratmış.
Bunlardan birinde de Kristof Kolomb'un ünlü gemisi Santa Maria'nın 1/1 kopyası yer alıyor.
Ziyaretçiler tekneyi gezip tekne hakkında ve keşifler çağının tekneleri hakkında ayrıntılı bilgiler alabiliyorlar.
Parkta yer alan bir başka tekne modeli de; Nuh'un gemisi.

das ist ja wirklich bemerkenswert: die Türkei hat unendlich viele Kilometer Küste, und wo strandet die Santa Maria? Mitten im Land, in einem Ententeich!
Schönes Foto, und für die Stadt eine Attraktion.

The ship is finely captured with exquisite details. I like your chosen angle, with the prow acting as a guide. Just imagine going to sea in one of these, where someone had to shin up the mast and sit in the 'crows nest' to look out for dangers, or for land!
Your inclusion of the crowds gives us an indication of its popularity. There appears to be man other displays on offer, here.
Have a great day,

It is a great joy to see how history is preserved and historical events are being commemorated through this original scale model of the famous ship that discovered America. It is a beautiful ship and a perfect replica. The Turkish flag and the other red flag adds nice dash of colour to the frame. Good shot, thanks for sharing.

Very picturesque photo, excellent sharpness, the colors are superb, I like this combination of the red Turkish flags and so clear blue sky. Good tribute to Christoph Colomb.

Good evening Mesut,
Nice idea by the city mayor to have a full scale Pirat-ship for the joy of the town's people, especailly those who never went to see the sea.
actually, looked up Google-map and realized this town is far from any close beach area.
Well taken shot, interesting and fine taken.

A wonderful composition, this beautiful copy of the Santa Maria, which looks sensational in that as ideal natural environment, people to visit, gives us an idea of its scale.
Very good range of colors.
A beautiful job very well done.
With good lighting and sharpness.
Have a nice day.

Salam Mesut Bey
Interesting repliqua of the Santa Maria
Very good frame quality with a nice perspective of the ship
PaulVDV (24191) 2014-02-25 10:49
You've captured that beautiful ship excellently against the blue sky.
Nice colour contrast with the warm tones of the wood and even much stronger with the two flags.
A big surprise to find such a ship inland.
Best regards, Paul

Noel_Byrne (27028) 2014-02-25 13:25
A striking image, and especially so that the flag flies so proudly above the ship,ngrabbing the attention with the vivid red color against the blue sky. What. Brilliant idea for an exhibit, this looks so real and original. Cool place to learn of through your really fine photo.
ACL1978 (7511) 2014-02-25 18:39
What a fascinating and odd tourist attraction - to see an Italian ship of exploration in the inland capital of Turkey! Beautiful and bright capture, and you caught the flags at the perfect moment - I've spent many minutes waiting for wind to creat flag flutter just like this... thanks!

On croirait la vraie....mais elle a été capturée par la marine turque -) Jolie lumière pour la mettre en valeur.

Merhaba dear Mesut
What an extraordinary memorial to the great man! The details of the tall ship are truly impressive and you have captured them with such sharpness and care. Beautiful colours, a good low pov and excellent light management.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing

Beautiful old ship, well framed from an interesting angle, perfect sharpness and nice colors, interesting effect with the red flags on this blue sky.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-03-02 1:33
di Eskisehir ho un buon ricordo. Non sapevo che nella città fosse stato creato un parco nel quale alloggiare anche questa nave. Per te è stata un'ottima occasione per fare una foto nella quale composizione e colore concorrono ad un eccellente risultato.
Ciao e buona domenica

Hello dear Mesut,
Beautiful capture of the model Santa Maria with great neatness and splendid light. I like a lot!
fritzi007 (8432) 2014-03-03 6:19
ein super Foto, einfach sehr gut, gute Werbung auch für Eskisehir, gratuliere!
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-03-03 13:07
I've missed that one and what a shame since I like it a lot. The boat looks immaculate and very pretty and the scenery is quite unrealistic which make this picture even more interesting. Very good colors and nicely balanced composition.
Ideal sharpness and well given contrast.
Thanks for sharing
adores (40444) 2014-03-24 16:22
A very interesting place, I believe it's a very good model of such a famous ship. And there are many visitors waiting to see it. Good shot, with good pov and colours!
jmdias (58570) 2014-05-10 1:46
very beautiful compo. I liked this angle and these details of the copy of the boat. curiously they didn't use the original flag, but the Turkish one, probably because the cross.
I will put this image in my copy collection theme.
