Nice picture, and gorgeous light. I think that's her best angle, and she looks 100% better than most blocks of flats (or sheep carriers!) but still not a patch on QE2.

Excellent shot, if anything its one of the best I have seen of her. However I just cant seem to get enthusiastic about about her looks, but I expect in 30 years time I will be enthusing about how great she looks compared to whatever will pass as a ship then.

I was going to say it is the best angle photo of her yet posted, however it is
spoiled, for me anyway, by the telephoto effect. Must have looked superb to the photographer's naked eye.

Snowy, Awe inspiring are two words that spring to mind to describe the morning/arrival. I will post the next two photo's taken with the digital to see whether they are any better. I did have a normal camera (film) the photos came out good but no so good when scanned.

Martin,

I was on MV Explorer otherwise known as Nick's Cruises, we were on the starboard side of QM2 all the way in. I think William C passed us around North Head. The fare was $40 and that included a cooked breakfast...not bad value.
After Explorer dropped us off she started hourly cruises from Princes around to Jellicoe as sightseeing trips and carried just under 1200 people by the last trip often leaving people behind as she was full on most trips. I think the saying goes make hay while the sun is shining!!!.
