» The Queens Depart

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

After this morning's photos I still wanted to go and get the Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth 2 leaving Southampton. The sun was in an out of the clouds and at some points the greyness of the sky behind the Queens looked very menacing from Hythe! Unfortunately the QE2 did not pass the QM2 which was the popular opinion! But luckily the weather held out and I got quite a few interesting shots of both vessels (even a couple with me in!).

The QM2 left first just after 6pm and then the QE2 came into view about 6.30 What a shame there wasn't a delay on the QM2!! Still the shots from this morning make up for it! Hythe was packed with people who thronged the pier which from a distance looked like a giant toothbrush.
