'N Loire' Departing Glasgow and Out to Sea

The 'N Loire' bulk carrier was scheduled to leave Glasgow last night, but poor visibility with fog prevent a safe departure even though the tugs made the trip upriver.

This allowed me to get some images in the daylight, so I headed up to Braehead for 10:00 this morning.

Got a few images as she departed and then headed home where I got some more from my window.

Then on down to port Glasgow to get a final few shots a she passed Port Glasgow on her outward passage to sea.
