CMB Sakura - Bulk Carrier

Another large bulk carrier on the Clyde today - this time inbound for Glasgow.

A very blustery day so suspect taking her upriver was a marginal decision. Three tugs assisted in her journey.

I was fortunate enough to catch her when the rain was off, but both myself and my tripod were almost blown off our respective feet.
