This photo says it all - built for speed and with a bow designed for cutting through the water. 

We can only enjoy seeing these photos because of the forum and the photo competition.

Hi Alan -

Thank you very much for making this spectacular photo of our beloved QE2 available for us to use for our computer wallpaper.  Sheer power and ultimate elegance and beauty are so evident in this photo !  But that indeed was/is our QE2.  Your time and talents are very much appreciated as we have QE2 in view throughout the month.

June   :)

October wallpaper calendar ready for you as a free download.

I hope you will enjoy seeing her doing her usual trick of drawing a crowd wherever she went.

You certainly could ensure there would be a crowd when QE2 was in town. 

Thanks to Fraser Ballantyne for the photo and to Alan for setting up the computer wallpaper for us all to enjoy

Thank you very much, Alan, for using your talents to make Fraser's marvelous photo available for us to use as our computer wallpaper for this month.  QE2 indeed was sure to draw a crowd !  And no wonder, with her beauty, excitement, power, and regal bearing !   :)

Another cracker from Andreas Busecke to get those of us in the northern hemisphere in the mood for winter.

The November wallpaper calendar is truly awesome !  Thank you very much to Alan for using your time and talents to prepare this month's calendar for us and to Andreas for allowing the use of his photo for the November wallpaper calendar.  Andreas' photo captures so well the excitement of QE2, how the little one is entranced with QE2, and one can just "feel" the weather just by looking at the photo !   :)

Hi Alan -

Thanks again very much for making a desktop wallpaper calendar available to us !

It is very much appreciated that you use your time and talents to create this wonderful QE2 wallpaper calendar each month !  And many thanks to Kyle Johnstone for allowing his photo to be used.

Brrrr is right and I am afraid that kind of weather is just around the corner !

What a wonderful way to start each day by firing up one's computer and greeting the day with QE2 !

June   :)

Many thanks to Alan Snelson for designing and making the QE2 wallpaper calendar available to us for so many months.  The wallpaper calendar is a wonderful way to be greeted by QE2 everytime we look at our computer desktops.

Is there anyone who would now volunteer to take over the making of the monthly wallpaper calendar ?

Alan has said that he will work with whoever volunteers to ensure a smooth transition.

Again, Alan, thank you very much for your time and talents ! and hopefully a volunteer will step up to again make the wallpaper calendar available to us.

June   :)

I would certainly miss not having the calendar to download to my computer and hope that someone can help to ensure we can continue to enjoy the photo competition winning pictures on our desktop computers.

Here are a couple of new calendar wallpaper photos for you for 2017. Sorry for the delay but I have been rather busy with other projects.

Someone else is due to be taking over production of these calendars in the near future, I hope you will continue to enjoy them.

Thank you very much, Alan, for the wonderful desktop wallpaper calendars.  They are absolutely wonderful, and your time and talents are very much appreciated !  It is not unusual for someone to come into my office and remark on the beautiful desktop photo/calendar and inquire about QE2 and who made up the calendars !  Thanks again !  June   :)

I have just uploaded my very first Wallpaper Calendar for the month March to the website, and it is available on the page from the 2017 calendar page.


I would personally like to thank Alan Snelson for not only all the previous calendar, but also the generous help that he has given me during the last few weeks with getting everything setup so that I can continue creating the wallpapers.


I would also like to thank Lynda Bradford for the lovely photograph of QE2, and personally do thing it quite suits this month really wel, with it being my very first month.


I probably forgot somebody when writing this post, if it does come to mind, I will update this post.


If anybody got any feedback, please let me know, any is welcome :)

Thank-you Bob for continuing the desktop calendar and it is so special for me that my photo has been used.  I had been given a little instamatic camera for my 15th birthday and the photo was taken with this camera a couple of years later in 1967 (giving my age away).  I could never had imagined that the ship sitting on the stocks in John Brown's shipyard would achieve such fame and mean so much to so many people. 

Thanks also to Alan for supporting Bob and for his previous work on the calendar.

Thank you very much, Bob, for the wonderful March Desktop Wallpaper Calendar.  It is magnificent and the calendar is great.  Thank you very much for taking over the production of the calendar, and it will be appreciated by all.  It is a great way to have QE2 at hand throughout the day (and night).

Thanks very much to Alan for providing the desktop calendars for us for so long and for assisting Bob in getting up and running with the production of the calendars.

And many thanks to Lynda for the absolutely beautiful photo of our QE2, most definitely the most beautiful ship in the world.   :)

Lynda - belter of a photo (for want of a better phrase) - but to add to what you said - I'll also bet you didn't think you'd be part of a small team of enthusiasts working hard to host a conference celebrating (what was at the time) Hull 736 soon to be QE2's 50th anniversary - you've topped and tailed this one. :)

For those who visited the monthly calendar page since last Saturday might have noticed that I upload a new Calendar for this month on April 1st. I however completely forgot to post it here, since I was otherwise occupied that day.


If anybody does have any special requests for next month, please send me a message, and I will look into it if its possible  :)

There are so many wonderful photos that would make good computer desktop calendars.  I would love to see a photo from the QE2 Mast theme, used for a future desktop calendar wallpaper.

Just looking at this topic I have completely forgotten to post here that I have put up the may 2017 edition.


Given that a month has past since then, and it is already June (how time flies), I have just uploaded the June 2017 edition :)
