Now thats an impressive boat
John Prior: Thanks Vintage, yes I'm saving up for one smile
That seems like such a big boat to be anchored there in that spot! A beautiful photo again.
John Prior: Thank you T, yes it does, surprised that is deep enough as much shallower where the gondolas are moored.

I like the old city behind the sleek vessel. Great sky as well.
John Prior: Thanks Sherri, I really liked the sky.

Great contrast between the ancient and modern
John Prior: Thanks Bill, most of Venice feels ancient.

What a goregeous graceful craft John
John Prior: Thanks Chris, not a bad little run about I suppose.
That big boat looks BIG, and expensive, and much more substantial and safe than a vaporetto. (You can guess, I don't like to be boats on water)
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, the most impressive luxury yachts I've seen so far where moored at Barcelona smile
A impressive boat and a lovely capture.
John Prior: Thanks Laurette, it is a lovely motor yacht, must be great to be able to afford a lifestyle like that smile
Wow. And it's not boat Friday. Great shot John
John Prior: Thanks Janet, I get my days confused smile
Really like how the boats are lined up in formation and appear to range in size from smallest to biggest. Great shot!
John Prior: Thank you Beverly, yes a progression of wealth.
They do look very modern against that great period architecture but perhaps more comfortable than a gondola.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, Gondolas are even more expensive smile
This is a lovely boat, from this angle it makes the buildings look small smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, but quite small compared to the cruise ships that really dwarf the biggest buildings here.
A sleek looking ship John..I like the cloud formation in this shot.
John Prior: Thanks Ron, I liked the sky in this one.

Lovely colors and impressive sky. Well captured.
John Prior: Thanks Otto, I liked the sky in this one.
Nice view of ancient and modern things: great opposition. Big sky again!
Have a nice day.
John Prior: Thanks Dom, the feeling of tradition is so strong in Venice.

John Prior: Thanks Krunal smile
Impressive!! The harbour looks somwhat similar to the Galway harbour, with those tall buildings so close to the water
John Prior: Thank you Marion.
