Weekend Reflections, Scenic Sunday / The Queen Mary in Long Beach Harbor, Long Beach, California USA

Click on photo to enlarge!
The Queen Mary is permanently docked in Long Beach Harbor.
This photo was taken at about 10:30 p.m. from across the water at Shoreline Village.
Long Beach is incredibly scenic at night!

We toured the Queen Mary quite a few years ago and it is an incredible ship. This is a great photo of her, I didn't realize the water in the harbor was so smooth. Even though I'm not an official player in the "Weekend Reflections" I have an extremely unique reflection on my blog today.

Love the docks by night... They are always full of poetry, with all those lights... And the Old Lady is such a boat...

Thanks for the sharing

Beautiful night shot of the harbor and Queen Mary.

RuneE said...

This looks quite different from the Queen Mary (2) I'm used to see :-)

But this is (was) a SHIP of kind that they don't build any more. Thank you for sharing.

Riet said...

Oh yes Carolyn, beautiful sight and reflection.

Fabulous shot, Carolyn! The Queen Mary looks more beautiful at night I think. What a great reflection also.

Great reflection! Night time at the harbors does make for incredible images. And the Lion's Light House is an incredible sky watch!

I'm back again to bring you an important message ;^) Several people who commented on my "Monochrome Lake" post for Phun Phriday! wondered how it was done, so I posted a tutorial on it today. If you're interested just click here. Thanks for dropping by and your comment.

That's beautiful - and it looks fabulous enlarged!

Wow! Wow!! This would be a great shot without the QM, but with it, it's spectacular.

stan said...

The lights that stretch along the length of Q Mary makes it look truly elegant. glad to meet a fellow teacher!

Hilda said...

That ship is just awesome and the lights so pretty!

I lost my post yeeterday. I aways want to go on a cruise when my dad told us when I was 4 that he traveled to England and back in a P & O liner.

But my husband isn't keen. he said, he will be bored to death. Last night, he took me to a pyseodo cruise.

Hilton hotel is built on an old dock, and shaped like a cruise liner. I was going to show you some photos, but my camera won't take night photos.

I will show you some day photos and I will let you know.

It was freezing when we left last night with the sea breeze.
