Have voted. I often wondered when I saw people taking pics "Why on earth are you taking a pic of that/them etc?"  Well looking at the entries there some really good pics in there.

Just to nit-pick though......some pics are of wires not ropes!   KIDDING!

Voted at last!! it really has been for me the hardest choice in all the photo comps to date, well done everybody, I think the images would make a calander  in their own rite.
    Completely off topic , my 1001st post , what to say except :      1001 thanks to Rob & the Mods who keep this site running,  1001 thanks for that magnificent event last month,  1001 thanks to the friends made on this forum,   1001 thanks to the great Lady languishing out in the desert without whom, all this wouldn't be happening.           1001 hopes that she makes it...........
  Could go on for too long here( not like me),

23 have voted so far, and there is one photo so far in the lead, it must be travelling at 33 knots (hee, hee).

If you have not voted, please do and enjoy the marvelous photos of QE2 and her "Ropes" while selecting your three favorite photos.

23 voters still, and a clear winner far ahead of the fleet...

Three or four photos contending for runner-up status, so there is much still to get excited about. Every vote counts!

Some might say we are lucky to get 23 voters. If nothing else what could be easier than voting on a selection of 3 photos.
But l agree..  You can tow a ship into a harbour, but a pencil must be lead :-\

Though l must confess, if it wasnt for the prompts im not sure id remember, it seems like only last month we were voting.
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!
