Queen Mary 2 Departing Fremantle

After another sensational day at Rottnest we were treated to the departure from Fremantle of the magnificent Queen Mary 2.

There was a fleet of pleasure boats escorting her out of the harbour, with the Port Authority Fire Rescue boat offering a dramatic water escort.

I am quite happy with both of the escort vessel shots.

  1. that is a very cool shot, Historical, one that will be looked at in 100 years and go wow, look at that fossil!

  2. excellent, I’d like some video footage of her leaving? She’s back again beginning of next year at least.

    • Hi Renee

      I did not get any video footage but can arrange some next time if you wish. Check out the link to Mike Fletcher on Christian Fletcher’s blog (his twin brother) he is an excellent videographer and if you wanted to arrange something with him, I am sure he would be keen! Thanks for dropping by!

  3. Nice Photo’s Mark, as Christian put it, definitely one for the archives. Reminds me of the QE2 and even the Canberra, I wonder if will ever be used as a troop ship???

  4. Yea I hope not too – ’cause that would be a lot of Aussies going to war!

  5. I concur, less war, more beautiful landscapes!

  6. Love the tug spray the water, good rainbow.

  7. I sat looking at that pulled back B&W for ages…. pretty cool!

  8. Didn’t get that kind of sendoff when True North slipped out of the heads at Freo but I recon I was having a better time than those old farts on the Queen Mary.

    Luv these shots Marky….

  9. I was on the QM2 sailing out of Freemantle. We had a great day and will visit you again sometime. Great to see the photos from your aspect. We named the Athena our lifeboat. Thanks to all for the fantastic welcome

    • Thanks Janice…the boat looked awesome and glad you liked the images…welcome back any time.

      I have just returned from Karijini and have some amazing images to load up soon!
