Today was the first sunny day we have had in a while and as luck would have it the Queen Mary 2 visited Halifax. So I thought I would try to get some pictures. These were taken with the 50-200 FT Oly lens (except where noted). This morning there was some haze and fog (tanker in the basin): P7030667 by pelicaneng, on Flickr and of course it got worse nearer the harbour mouth (this is about 2km from the ship): P7030672 by pelicaneng, on Flickr The Queen Mary 2 was leaving about the time I left work so I rushed down to get a better image since the fog had (mostly) lifted. Of course I was too late, and the fog was still in the harbour mouth.

Cliff Notes - atmospheric distortion sucks.
