V1 is my preference here Ronnie.Marvellous background of tthe blue mountains. Not so sure about V2, but an interesting shot nevertheless.

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.

V1 is so lovely, set against that great bg, the waves all around her but V2 makes for an interesting shot too. Great colours and comp in both. Remember eating rain-soaked sandwiches on a school trip many moons ago whiel sailing on her!!

Superbly captured, Ronnie, she certainly is a beautiful and well travelled PS, I saw her many times at Worthing in Sussex. Carol
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.

Hi Ronnie.
Have had a few trips on her, the last a few weeks back from Penarth to Ilfracombe, fine old ship and a great bar.

Certainly a beauty of a ship, and for me the seclusion in V1 works perfectly with the write up

V1 for me, great image with the back drop of the mountains, nice one !
26 Jul 2011 6:00PM
Testament to the shipbuilding skills of yesteryear Ronnie, she's a beautiful design, wonder how many folk she's carried in her time. Great capture with that backdrop of mountains, a fine image.

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.
26 Jul 2011 8:28PM

Great shots of a ship powered from a bygone era. Have heard it may not continue next year. Too expensive to run. Sadly. paul
