Congratulations to the winner and runner up.  We had a fantastic selection of photos to choose from but these two were worthy winners.

Congratulations to Katharina for her lovely photo! Maybe her teddy Brum Brum will want to make friends with Jasper :) .

Thank you also for appreciating my photo of the rear of the mast. It was a wonderful day in Quebec, exploring various out of bounds areas together with Pia -- we had great fun.

Teddy Brum Brum looks a cool dude if you ask me :)

The detail in the mast photo is stunning too!

Congrats to both.

Isabelle is busy working behind the scenes on your 2021 calendar and I've just had a sneak preview!

It looks really exciting, but it will be a wee while yet until you can order yours... watch this space, more news coming soon!  Forum members get first dibs :)

Why did the man get fired from the calendar factory?

Because he tried to take a month off...

Looking forward to seeing the 2021 Calendar! Had to chuckle at the joke!
First travelled on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and travelled on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008 - we had the better view!

Congratulations to Fraser (frazscot), who this month is both the main winner and the runner-up winner, with two historical photos. Fascinating glimpses into the earlier life of QE2, starting with her construction!

This early photo was the clear favourite among the voters :

Sometime in 1966 !


Congratulations also for the runner-up photo of a period when this area looked so different from her final appearance :

Tender & pool in the 80's


Once again, many thanks to everyone who entered photos and everyone who voted, helping us to keep increasing our library of QE2 photos during all phases of her life at sea.

Looking forward to receiving the originals of these photos, which will go into the 2021 calendar, currently taking shape.

We had many fantastic photos entered for the August competition " QE2 with a boat or ship as an escort" in fact Rod summed it up when he said "in my opinion this set of "piccies" is the best ones"

Thanks to everyone who entered photos and who voted  :)

We have joint winners this month - congratulation to both of you:

Pete Hamill's photo "The Race is on"


and ...

Isabelle Prondzynski's photo "QE2 and Company"


You can almost feel the movement of the boats in these two pictures. 

Two of Hamburger's photos were joint runners up:

Following QM2


Nutshell beside QE2


Seeing the fantastic selection of photos in the photo competition each month, makes it so worthwhile. 

Remember to look out for details of how to order the 2021 Calendar which will be ready to order soon.

What an exciting competition that was! Thank you so much for enjoying it and for voting.

And amazing to close the year with two winners and two runners up! I shall now try and accommodate all the winning pictures of the year in two or possibly even three calendars. Much to look forward to.
