We had a wonderful evening cruise in the Bristol Channel onboard this fine old vessel.PS Waverley is the last seagoing passenger carrying paddle steamer in the world. Built in 1946, she sailed from Craigendoran on the Firth of Clyde to Arrochar on Loch Long until 1973. Bought by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society, she has been restored to her 1947 appearance and now operates passenger excursions around the British coast.

Excellent Mark, an interesting an unique example. I like the way this pic is composed as well.
Lovely job Mark. Marvelous way to travel. Similar vessel used to ply its trade across the Humber before the building of the bridge. Can't bring the name to mind right now...
Another strong and effective composition. I saw the Waverley in Scotland quite recently.
Super shot & info
Generally I like all your pictures , but this is one of my favourites
Thanks very much Gents...
Perfect pic Mark,
A fabulous capture of this lovely old paddle steamer, top notch Mark
Well composed, and the strong side lighting enhances the contrast, excellent
Thanks Mike and Edward.
