A bit of a breeze blowing up on Douglas Head this afternoon and I just couldn’t resist this one of the Manannan backing in to her Berth.

Coupled with the Gorgeous WW1 commemorative display of poppies on Douglas Head now in full bloom which is a total credit to Douglas Corporation Gardening Department for such a fantastic display up on Douglas Head.

A visitor to Douglas Harbour – Motor Yacht Solandge was built this year (2013) at the Rendsburg shipyard in Germany and will be travelling on to the Caribbean after her visit to the Isle of Man.

The 85-metre vessel which has 5 decks is ranked as the 62nd largest yacht of its kind in the world and was unveiled in June 2013. It comes complete with a crew of around 30.

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Spotted the Dublin registered Tug “Deilginis” sitting off the Tower of Refuge in Douglas Bay last week.

I am pretty sure she was accompanying the Excalibur jack-up barge that was also sheltering in the Bay.

This image of Douglas Head Lighthouse was captured just before the last of the winters day sun dissapeared.

Douglas Head Lighthouse was originally erected in 1832 and replaced by this Lighthouse in 1892 at a cost of £32,000 it stands 32m above sea level and the Lighthouse has now been automated and is now in private ownership.

This beautiful super yacht Amaryllis has been moored on the northern side of Victoria Pier in Douglas Harbour for the best part of a week now, so I could not resist grabbing a few piccies of her.

Built by Abeking & Rasmussen at Weser in Germany she is 78m (257′) long, steel hulled with an aluminium superstructure. Designed by London outfit Reymond Langton Ltd the Amaryllis can take 12 guests and 22 crew.

The Amaryllis is registered in GeorgeTown, Cayman Islands and is reported to cost an eye-watering £100m – Ouch!

The images were captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
