Queen Elizabeth 2

Queen Elizabeth 2

Luxury cruise ship Queen Elizabeth 2 tied up at the quayside in Cobh, Co Cork last Thursday. This was moments before she cast off. You can see a tug in the background of this image.

It was bitterly cold down on the quay, but we were lucky that the evening sun cast a lovely golden glow over everything.

PPS. Just back from the camera club. This image came second overall in the digital section of tonight’s open photo competition. It drew with another image, on equal points. Chuffed!

    Great shot Donncha, love the compressed perspective and muted tones. As usual the beautiful light makes all the difference.

    Thanks Ciara and Davy!

    Phil – I thought the same, but I think it’s the angle I took the photo from. From directly in front is looks like another boring old regular font!
