I think I commented this photo before crash, so let´s write it again. Simply excellent photo! She sailed a short period for Team Lines.

Thanks Cornelia!

Actually Buxtehude is a small town in Lower Saxony in the north of Germany, 20 km from where I was born. :-D

You really get those ships at a perfect angle :) Buxtehude, not a very good name, but.. well what should one expect :-)
Jens Boldt on Jan 08, 2008 22:31 (10 years ago)
Hallo Tomas!
Danke schön für deinen Kommentar! :-)

Well, this is one of my pics which disappeared with the crash last month.
A pity you didn't catch Buxtehude, but I'm still envious you caught QE2. :-D
