» The Queens Arrive

Ships Attending: {Queen Mary 2} {Queen Elizabeth 2}
Date: {05/06/04}

Well, it wasn't raining and even though I got up ridiculously early I still wasn't there in time to see the Queen Mary 2 arrive, *but* the main thing was I got the Queen Elizabeth 2 crossing QM2's stern as the sun rose, quite a rare event and one im so glad I got up for, I think these might be the best set of pictures I've currently taken.

I must say it was an awesome sight to see both liners together again and finally I've gotten to see them catching the sun! As QE2 gracefully moved up the channel I just couldn't help myself taking pictures - she's so photogenic (if that's possible in Ship terms!).

My apologies for the sometimes odd colour changes in the photos (ie, the blue tinge, you can see the ones which are correct though), this is down to my automation (size/leveling) software which doesn't always hit the mark, but saves me manually editing each picture. Trust me though - the originals are splendid!
