The "Waverley" is the last seagoing passenger carrying paddle steamer in the world.
She was built in 1946 at A. and J. Inglis (Glasgow) shipyard and named after Sir Walter Scott's first novel.

V 1: Waverley heading out in the Firth of Clyde on 25.07.2011 (the island of Arran lies in the b/g)
V 2: Returning to her home berth by the Science Centre (just off screen to the right of the BBC building) in the mid evening sunshine on 09.07.2011

Details: see EXIF

My grateful thanks to all who Cand C'd on "Abbeyfield Gold".

Ronnie.

I love this old pleasure steamer, and have been on a trip....a REAL pleasure! She has been beautifully restored. She was bought for the princely sum of £1 in 1974 by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society.
V1 is my favourite, she sits so beautifully against the mountain, majestic and proud.

Nice to see the old steamer is still going Ronnie,after its troubled past.
And who needs to spend all that money to travel up the Mississipi in one,when you can go to the Clyde ?
Good shots.

Just back to say Ronnie,that I tend to carry my Minolta as well as the G11 when I am out.
I have a 70/210 on my Minolta which I use for the more ''far away'' shots that are ''out of reach'' of the G11.
A good example would be subjects at the other side of the harbour for instance.

Arran and the Holy Isle make a wonderful backdrop for the Waverley sliding gracefully down the Clyde. She's brought so much pleasure to millions of people from around the world and leaves a lasting memory wherever she sails.

I have to agree. She sailed the south coast quite often. V1 for me, the scenery.

V1 is a grand composition Ronnie; the Waverley is passing by the wonderful scenery and we can imagine how exciting it would be to be on board. A timeless image. V2 brings us very much up to date but again the composition is perfect.
