  1. Fabby photo! There’s something about these liners that make them great subjects. I just love the framing of this and the crash of the wave in the foreground.

  2. Well done Curly! A fine record of the last days of a fine ship. Glad to see the Tyne still busy. (I’ve forgotten, but I suppose QEII was “Clyde Built”…..forgive me if I’ve upset Tyne-siders.

  3. This is beautiful. Catching that breaking wave really adds to the photo. It almost looks like a small waterfall.
