The Royal Barge Gloriana continuing upriver to Staines on the River Thames

The Royal Barge at St Katharines Dock, however the background was too much of a distraction so the barge and reflection have been colour popped.

Oars raised aloft to allow the Royal Barge Gloriana to enter Penton Hook Lock on the River Thames

The rudder of the Royal Barge Gloriana

A Fairy's house stands in a wood,

Midst fairy trees and flowers,

Where daisies sing like little birds

Between the sun and showers,

And grasses whisper tiny things

About this world of ours.

 

Such flowers are there beside the way,

Lilies and hollyhocks:

Blow off their stalks to tell the time

Tall dandelion clocks;

While harebells ring an hourly chime

Like a wound music-box.

 

Some day shall we two try to find

This strange enchanted place?

Go hand in hand through flower-lit woods

Where living trees embrace--

And suddenly, as in a dream,

Behold a fairy's face!

The Gloriana is a 28.6-metre-long (94 ft) British royal barge. She was privately commissioned as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II for her Diamond Jubilee, and was the lead vessel in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

This is one of the Royal barges used for The Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Here you can see it moored in St Katherine's Dock.

This was one of the hardest images I took on my bi-annual visit to London as the light was all over the place - too dark - too many overblown highlights on the millionaire's boats, too many shadows plus the Gloriana was in the most unfortunate place to get a really super overall capture given the difficult lighting conditions.

 

I took loads of shot s from various positions and various exposures, but she kept moving around in the wind and I failed to get what I really wanted. Finally I decided this was the best shot and admit to having to adjust lighting in Photoshop to give the best overall appearance. The boats in the background are still overblown, but the main subject is the best I could achieve.

This is one of the Royal barges used for The Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Here you can see it moored in St Katherine's Dock. In the background you can just make out 'The Gherkin' and newly erected 'Cheesegrater' skyscrapers in the City of London, the financial heart of the capital. 3 exposures with -1+ stops bracketing, then Photomatix for HDR and tonemapping treatment, and finally Photoshop for the finishing touches.

At the Olympic Park...you would have thought they could have moored it with a better background!!

Die Saarschleife, Durchbruchstal der Saar durch den Taunusquarzit, gehört zu den bekanntesten Sehenswürdigkeiten des Saarlandes. Die schönste Ansicht bietet der Aussichtspunkt Cloef im Mettlacher Ortsteil Orscholz, 180 m hoch über dem Fluss. Auch unmittelbar vom Saarufer aus bieten sich imposante Ausblicke. Steil zerklüftete Felswände wechseln mit Schutthalden und kleinen Schluchten ab.

 

Die Saarschleife beginnt kurz hinter Merzig beim Stadtteil Besseringen und endet in Mettlach. Die Luftlinie zwischen Besseringen und Mettlach beträgt nur etwa zwei Kilometer. Die Saar macht einen romantischen "Umweg", der nahezu zehn Kilometer beträgt.

 

Auf dem bewaldeten Bergrücken innerhalb der Saarschleife befinden sich die Kirche St. Gangolf mit Teilen der ehemaligen Klosteranlage und die Burgruine Montclair. Einziger Ort in der Saarschleife ist das Dorf Dreisbach, wohin man mit einer Fähre übersetzen kann.

 

Die Saarschleife gilt als das Wahrzeichen des Saarlandes. Ins Rampenlicht rückte sie immer wieder, wenn Staatsoberhäupter sich dort einfanden: Friedrich Wilhelm IV., König von Preußen besuchte den Aussichtspunkt Cloef mit Blick auf die Saarschleife am 29. September 1856. Adolf Hitler besichtigte sie am 16. Mai 1939. Der Bundeskanzler Konrad Adenauer traf sich dort am 25. Juni 1965 mit saarländischen Politikern. Oskar Lafontaine und Gerhard Schröder wurden am 4. August 1997 an der Cloef mediengerecht mit der Saarschleife ins Bild gesetzt. Der französische Präsident Jacques Chirac und der polnische Präsident Lech Kaczynski trafen sich an der Saarschleife zum Dreiergipfel mit Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel am 5. Dezember 2006.

Moored somewhat incongruously in a tucked away corner of the London 2012 Olympic Park you could find the Royal Barge, Gloriana, star of the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant a few months earlier. The backgorund to the shot isn't great but it was the wonderful reflections that made the shot for me.
