Queen Victoria

Cruise ship Queen Victoria, IMO 9320556, port of Livorno
This is not my best backlight shot, but I have finally caught the 294-meter “Queen Victoria” in our waters. I already saw her slowly negotiating the Giudecca Canal, in Venice, a couple of years ago.

In the above shots you can see her sliding by the Madonna dei Popoli and then turning toward the open sea, just outside the port.

Looks like the Queen of Heaven was offering a helping had to the Queen Victoria.

I rather like the backlit shot. It makes the ship glow.
And the way you got the ship and the Maria is fantastic!

A ship that size really needs a helping hand and a blessing too!

Watch out Lady Madonna. That's a pretty big ship headed your way.

Just went back to read the Madonna back story VP, do I understand that you're not that keen? In your last shot of the Queen Vic how small did the passengers look way up there on deck, enormous vessel!
