Port Rashid 2001-2017

Port Rashid has changed a lot of the years.I have putted together some Google Earth captures
from almost every year since 2001 until Today.
The changes are noticable and gives a clue how QE2 has been moved around.

Thank you, Louis. It is good to be able to picture QE2's closest surroundings.

When we see photos of the ship (apart of course from those taken on the quay itself), where would the photographers be located in this scene?

Thanks for capturing this excellent record and posting for us to view.

Isabelle,you will surprised to know how much QE2 is in the center of the spolight.The whole area around QE2 is a busy bustling one.Hundreds of photos are mostly likely taken in a day some direct on QE2 other just a simple photo with QE2 in it.

To one side you have the Dry Docks and Dubai Maritime City specially here with the office building overlooking QE2.Then you have Port Rashid itself with the cruise season ongoing,today with the Vision of the Seas calling,then the local movement of cargo,tug,supplies ships coming and going on Googles Earth capture you can count 51 ships are in port.Then you have truck,taxi and bus drivers and so one.

And finally the main road that goes along the whole of Port Rashid and the first rows of high building all with good views over QE2.

Like I said many hundreds of photos are taken daily and some do end up on Fecebook.The search for them costs time.

When cruise ships dock in Dubai, are they close to QE2? Or are the new terminals further away from her?

On the capture below you can see the blue line Cruise Ships dock here Cruise Terminal 2 & 3
QE2 is between +-1000 and 1600 meters away from those terminals
