Firstly - Thank you for Voting, and what a lovely surprise!
To be honest this has always been selfishly, my favourite  shot of the sailaway taken with very tearful eyes, waving at the same time and it was freezing cold.
This was taken  just before Captain McNaught must have moved his hand on the High Speed Ahead lever - as QE2 literally looked as if she couldn't bear any more of the hanging about - she needed to get away before getting the hankies out.
The Saddest Night with the Greatest ship.

Congratulations to both for these beautiful photos. As so often before, they are quite different, and show QE2 enjoying her power in her element the ocean.

Congratulations to the winner and runner up of the January competition and a big thank-you to everyone who entered photos and/or voted.

The winner and a very popular choice of those who voted is Cunarder Man's picture " Tandem departure NY 2004"



.... and another popular picture was the runner up - Bob C's photo "Summer in the (New York) City"




Both picture capture the theme very well and we are so lucky that our forum members continue to support the competition so that we see so many photos of QE2 over the years.

However, we need our forum members to keep uploading their photos to the competition. Even if you cannot enter photos every month the moderator team would be so grateful if you could vote so as to support the competition and keep the memory of QE2 alive.


You can see the result of the poll now that the voting is finished.
