Extract from Sydney Ports Media Release :

"The luxury cruise liner Queen Mary 2 will berth at Sydney's Overseas Passenger Terminal for the first time ever on 7 March 2012.

Sydney Ports Executive General Manager, Industry Relations and Logistics, Lachlan Benson, said it will be the biggest ship ever to tie up at the terminal.

"Sydney Ports has made a considerable effort to be able to accommodate the ship, including placement of a special heavy-duty anchor in Campbell's Cove this week, to ensure the 345-metre Queen Mary 2 is moored safely.

"Placement of this anchor was originally planned for later this year to cater for larger ships arriving in the 2012/13 season, but was brought forward at the request of cruise company, Carnival Australia.

"This is great news for Sydney Ports because it allows for increased use of the Overseas Passenger Terminal by bigger ships," Mr Benson said"

Thanks Mr Dot. It's marvelous that no matter what man does, the natural beauty of the Harbour remains as the principal memory.
Clyde Dickens on Mar 08, 2012 02:01 (6 years ago)
Thanks Cody. I'm pleased the hull and superstructure colours helped make her stand out from the background.
Mr. DOT on Mar 08, 2012 01:58 (6 years ago)
maybe it's a good thing that their is no climbing wall on this one, I have just been vueing a pic. of Sydney harbour years ago from my youth, and the brand new Oriana arriving under the coathanger approaching tne then new circular pier, and with the old Orient line livery! mrdot.
Cody Williams on Mar 08, 2012 00:54 (6 years ago)
Fantastic shot, Clyde. Wonderfuly light and the composition is spot on! Well done and congratulations for getting into the most viewed.
Clyde Dickens on Mar 07, 2012 17:11 (6 years ago)
Thank you Ted. She certainly is easier to see at Circular Quay than at borrowed space at Navy Fleet Base. The terminal building is to be rebuilt to facilitate handling passengers from her and other very large vessels heading this way.
Captain Ted on Mar 07, 2012 13:33 (6 years ago)
Good one Clyde,, looks "even" better then the PIC !!
Gordy on Mar 07, 2012 11:16 (6 years ago)
Good one Clyde, I reckon if I stood atop the mast I could look across the city side of the bridge and see our old family home, she seemed high enough.
Clyde Dickens on Mar 07, 2012 09:57 (6 years ago)
Thank you Gordy. She really is a dominant sight. I almost felt I could reach across the water and touch her.
Gordy on Mar 07, 2012 08:27 (6 years ago)
top stuff clyde, good one mate
Clyde Dickens on Mar 07, 2012 06:02 (6 years ago)
Thank you. Re "i love the look of Sydney harbour" Me too! It is my hobby.
peterredd on Mar 07, 2012 05:52 (6 years ago)
Very nice shot i have to say i love the look of Sydney harbour.. I have been there many times.. and you never know what ships/vessel you may see there.... Cheers
Clyde Dickens on Mar 07, 2012 05:45 (6 years ago)
Thank you Scott. Don't forget to bring your visa for crossing the Bridge. (How is that for real North Shore pompousness?)
Scott Browne on Mar 07, 2012 05:40 (6 years ago)
nice shot Clyde! I must get over to that side of the bridge for photos occasionally!
Clyde Dickens on Mar 07, 2012 05:32 (6 years ago)
I agree with that also.
peterredd on Mar 07, 2012 05:31 (6 years ago)
Not in the same class as the Epic...
Clyde Dickens on Mar 07, 2012 05:30 (6 years ago)
I recognise your sense of humour. And I like irreverence.
Magogman on Mar 07, 2012 05:27 (6 years ago)
I think it needs a waterslide on the funnel. Or 2 of them.
Clyde Dickens on Mar 07, 2012 05:25 (6 years ago)
Thank you Mr Dot. I agree.
Best regards
Mr. DOT on Mar 07, 2012 05:17 (6 years ago)
now this is an impressive looking vessel with great historical livery, and in a rite proper maritime setting! not the shipshape lines of some of the classic vessels, but certainly more shapely than the epic! mrdot.
