20th September

20th September

Nipped over to Greenock to see the QE2,
she was back on home water (the Clyde!) as part of a 8 day tour round Britain,
as well as quite a few boats and yachts, the Red Arrows also followed her up here too!

it was quite disappointing that we couldn't get anywhere near the QE2, it was Fenced Off!
But i think the display by the Red Arrows made up for that ;-)

Nikon D50
1/2000s f/5.6 at 270.0mm full exif

@SRW - I'm old enough to remember seeing the original Queen Elizabeth (the ship, that is...)

Very nice shot of this demonstration. Zak, what is the matter with them--when the QE2 was here in New Orleans they allowed people to tour on board.

Wow, they're colourful, especially against that sky!

Dramatic, very pretty, and well done.

You only get one chance at a shot like that, and you captured it beautifully!
Well done - fantastic shot!

Superb shot. Planes are even more interesting than boats!

They flew down the eastern kyle (very near Rhubodach) and gave me the fright of my life just about 12:10, nearly fell off the bike.

Brilliant pics for such a dreich day.
