August 2021 : QE2's smoking funnel
« on: Aug 03, 2021, 01:10 PM »
The theme for this month's photo competition is "QE2's smoking funnel", chosen by Lynda Bradford, the winner of the April 2021 competition.

Photos should be taken during QE2's service life, within the ship or from shoreside. Each photo should show QE2's funnel and some smoke issuing from it, and the description should if possible give some information about the location and the year. Lots of possibilities come to mind -- daytime or night time, perhaps even taken during the Funnel Run :) .

Enjoy the search!



The prize this month is the DVD "QE2 the last of the great Queens'", donated by me.


Alternatively, depending on circumstances due to Covid-19 restrictions, June Ingram may be able to offer a jigsaw of the prizewinning photograph.



How to enter

The album is open -- so now is the time to look for your three most interesting pictures on this theme. Wishing you happy memories as you search your photo collection to find up to three pictures to upload to the competition album.

Photos entered must be your own, or if not, please mention the name of the photographer for copyright reasons, and so that the owner can win the prize!

This link will take you straight there : QE2's smoking funnel.

If you have not uploaded photos to the Forum Gallery before, have a look at these instructions, and if you have any problems, just contact us on admin@theqe2story.com. You could even email the photos to this address, and we can upload them for you.

The deadline for submitting photos is 31 August 2021. Voting will run from 1 September 2021 until 1 October 2021, until everyone's time zone has caught up with the date.

We look forward to seeing your photos in this competition. 

This is the penultimate month of photos for the 2022 calendar. Maybe your photo will figure there!

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

An interesting theme, and tricky this time to choose just three photos to upload!
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2 in her new life, in Dubai, in January 2020 and August 2022.

Well Robert, I think you have done just that! A hard to beat photo, but it would also be hard to find the photographer at this stage I would imagine...

Entered!

An interesting hunt through my photos for this one, looking at them from a different point of view.

Surprised how many photos show the QE2 NOT smoking - credit to her engineers.
Passionate about QE2's service life for 40 years and creator of this website.  I have worked in IT for 28 years and created my personal QE2 website in 1994.

I think boiler smoke is going to win this one.

Diesel smoke is far more 'gentle', but neither is good for one' lungs.
Just ask an engineer who, in 1977, was trapped at sea with a collapsed right lung from inhaling a sulphur smut!
