Playing about on the river

Myself and a mate from work went out on the river this morning. Apart from a few commercial vessels and the odd sailing boat thingy it was just us creating ripples on the rather rough river.

Pic1: Watwick Beach, two bays round from Dale.
Pic2: Rambiz preparing for a 1000ton lift at South Hook this morning.
Pic3: 20knots down river.
Pic4: Rowers playing around down river by Texaco.

Pic1: Looking across to Texaco in the rough conditions
Pic2: Downriver pic, by this time we were about to go in since it was getting hard holding onto things given the rough weather conditions.
Pic3: The sun pokes through a gap in the clouds to shine on the Smit Beaver (tug).

For those of you with 512k broadband, go here for this mornings video:-

Unless you want to download the 768kbps video, which is here instead:-
http://files.ribseadrive.co.uk/cruis...2-06_large.wmv

I've been trying to get the digicam fixed to the a-frame with mixed results. I think the next attempt will be in an ip rated box bolted to the radar reflector higher up but with the DV Camcorder in, padded by lots of foam to reduce the vibration.

What a grey day!!! Was quite different when I went down there in August - lovely blue skies!!!

Quite a good video - remember higher the shutter speed the less shakes you get so on a sunny day it should be a lot better!!!

Amazing video. Quite good. Loved the music soundtrack. Really well done. Didn't notice the vibration at all. I really must get a radar arch.

The lack of vibration would be due to the counter-weight.
