Queen Mary 2 in Liverpool

Awesome morning so far. No rain, windy and oddly not that cold. Been flying around in a helicopter photographing the arrival of the Queen Mary 2 in Liverpool. The biggest cruise ship to ever grace the Liverpool skyline. Amazing sight from up there as I’m sure you can tell.

    That sounds very casual – ‘been flying around in a helicopter’! QE2 suckling its young. (Grand city vista too).

    It was a challenging cold day and difficult to find a good position on the Liverpool side. Great image this. I wondered who was in the helicopter whilst it flew up and down. I also wondered what it would have been like from the top of the cathedral at dusk.

    Very impressive, I remember doing photographs of the arrival of the QE2 on her first visit to Liverpool in 19hundredandfrozentodeath, well a long time ago. So popular was the arrival photogs were limited to a 20 minute fly past in a Cessna, that many had requested flights. I can not help but think that more people would have turned out if the Queen Mary had arrived in July. Great Photograph.
