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.

Popped down to take some images of this organised walk to the Tower of Refuge tonight, there were literally thousands of people queuing to walk out to the Tower at low tide, I just took some images from the Promenade walkway (basically because I could not be bothered queuing and it was starting to rain).

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