The panorama opens with a view of Derry City Council office building with the Foyle Marina in front of it.
As it starts to rotate we are looking down the River Foyle towards the Foyle Bridge in the distance and then gradually the trees of St Columb's Park come into view.
Next we reach the golden light of dawn reflected in the river. The white structure over the river just after the dawn light, is the foot and cycle bridge known as the "Peace Bridge"
The Peace Bridge joins Ebrington Square
on the "Waterside" of the river Foyle with Harbour Square
on the "Cityside" of the river. At Harbour Square you can see the clock tower of the Guildhall and the yellow brickwork of the City Hotel.
Along the river front are many restaurants and then across the car park near the camera are buildings belonging to North West Regional College. Just before we come back to the Council offices you catch a glimpse of one of the buildings on the University of Ulster, Magee College campus.
Until the latter half of the twentieth century this was a thriving cargo port. The straight lines in the concrete are the remnants of tramlines that guided cranes along the quayside. Where the cars are parked was once the location of the Glasgow Shed and Liverpool Shed, warehouses where cargo, including livestock, waited to be loaded onto ships.
The last remnants of the cargo port moved down river twenty five, or more, years ago. In recent years the riverside has been developed with foot and cycle paths, the Foyle Marina, apartment complexes and Derry City Council office building. New restaurants and cafes have opened along the river.
