Arriving in Ayr harbour.
The Waverley is the last sea-going paddle steamer left in the world and spends her summers cruising the Clyde.
From further back.
This unique view of her arriving at Ayr shows just how much fine control there is available in the systems that 197 aerial photography has developed.
The trick here was to keep the camera in exactly the same spot for over three minutes to ensure that all the photos lined up correctly to create the multiple ship effect.
Swinging left into the harbour entrance.
In the River Ayr with The Twa Brigs in the distance as she lines up to approach her berth on the south bank of the river.
Ropes attached and aligned with her berth.
Closer in and almost tied up safely.
All set to receive the passengers, just off the pier in the top right.
Always remember that images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the small sized compressed images which are shown
as .jpg files on this website.
