This image was taken from Stanley Point on Auckland’s North Shore while the Queen Mary 2 was in town. Usually cruise ships and passenger liners berth at the grey cruise ship terminal to the right of the brick clock tower of the Ferry Building. However, the QM2 was too big! She was berthed at the container terminal out of picture to the left. The panorama is dominated by Auckland’s Sky Tower and the Vero Building (with the halo – colloquially known as the “toilet seat”).
