« on: Jan 02, 2021, 08:58 PM »
The theme for this month's photo competition is "QE2 being assisted by a harbour tug", chosen by Pete Hamill, the winner of the August 2020 competition.

There should be plenty of eligible photos about, whether seen from on board or from shoreside.

Enjoy the search :) .



The prize this month is  the book "QE2: The Cunard Line Flagship, Queen Elizabeth 2" by Commodore Ronald W. Warwick and Sam Warwick, donated by Richard J Wade.

We now have twelve excellent photos added to the Gallery competition album but would love to see more photos of QE2 being assisted by a harbour tug. 

Time to check the photo albums and add your three best photos that fit the theme.   :)

Just added my tuppence-worth. I think I was maybe thinking too far outside of the box with one of them though!

I have just realised that Cunarder Man's photo of QE2 departing  Zeebrugge was probably taken from Queen Victoria at the same time I was taking a photo of Queen Victoria from QE2!!!!
If you check both pictures, you will see the person in orange on QE2's bridge wing in both of them.

Small world indeed!

It is a small World, you were so near but so far from Cunarder Man taking photos from the opposite angle.

What are the chances, all these years later, of the two photos being uploaded to this little old website, and not only that but you spotting the coincidence.  Remarkable.
