French yacht, Le Ponant resting at anchor at Aldabra Atoll, Seychelles, Indian Ocean.
An interesting, bittersweet postcript to this photo is that this yacht, Le Ponant was hijacked by Somali pirates three weeks after this photo was captured as the ship repositioned from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. No passengers were aboard when the pirates attacked. One week later the crew was released unharmed after payment of ransom. French forces apprehended several of the Somali pirates after they fled the ship with their loot. The pirates face prosecution in France. Way to go, France!
