Joint Warrior Departures

 Up early (again) this morning and across to Rhu to get some images of the last of the Joint Warrior ships departing.

Very cold and rain showers were the order of the day.

After the last one left Faslane - a quick breakfast - then I headed over to Erskine and grabbed a few shots of the departures from Glasgow.

Then, back across to the Gareloch to try and get there in time for the arrival of the Seuz as she is a rare visitor to our waters.

Didn't quite manage to my usual spot, but got a few off Clynder just before the heavens opened up and we were drenched,
