Unusual stitched panoramic view of the SS Great Britain crying out to be vectorised. Photo by Nicholas van der Walle using an old digital camera and Photoshop. The view is a stitch of photos from straight-on level to vertically above view point (prow of the ship). The SS Great Britain is back in its original Bristol dry dock where Mr Brunel oversaw its original build - a wonderful installation with a thin surface of water on glass resulting in the wonderful effect.

Visit Bristol's award winning visitor attraction, Brunel's SS Great Britain, and discover the ship that changed the world.
