I quite enjoy photographing scenes around Southampton Water. There’s always loads going on, whether big container ships are on the move, or smaller vessels on quietly moving up and down the river. Where I come from I should probably be photographing trains, as it’s a railway town… but I think I prefer the boats.
I was up early this morning to watch Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria sail up Southampton Water and into dock. They are in Southampton to celebrate 175 years of Cunard. Difficult photography conditions. Low light, rain and a reasonable distance from the ships.
This is Queen Victoria
