As June says : "Enjoy a glass of your favourite beverage and enjoy the great variety of the photos. Choose your three favourites."

A great attractive topic, which will take us right back to the lovely leisurely evening hours on board. Enjoy indeed!

Cracking photos!

There's a shot there of the Chart Room Bar (with the engraved glass panel) and a shot of the midships bar which are taken at almost exactly the same spot!  Great to see.

Please, Sir, can we not have 31 votes this month...?

Guess not... and eliminating 28 from that lot is a tougher challenge than the Iron Man race and the Royal Navy "Perisher" course combined...

I have somehow managed it and put in my three votes.

Actually, Peter, I had the very same feeling when I looked through these photos and enjoyed them all. They bring beautiful memories, and are so well taken also.

Feeling very grateful to the photographers who brought us these memorable scenes.

There is so much if QE2's history in these photos.  Not just a photo competition but keeping the memory alive!

Well said Peter the competition photos get better each month.

So difficult to choose just three but please vote to support everyone who entered pictures.

Indeed ! it would also be nice if the winners gave a little description of where and when the photo was taken.
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,

So good!  :)

6 voters so far, as we approach the half-way mark this month. We need many more!

June says the choice is difficult -- but you may find it easy to home in on the pictures you like. Just choose some fine photographs, good enough to go into a calendar. You may never have travelled on QE2, but you can still select the photos that appeal to you. Please give it a try!

I shall soon be starting to work on the 2025 calendar, so it really helps to know your preferences :) .
