Sunset, Weddell Sea, Antarctica. I had come out on deck a couple of hours earlier to photograph tabular icebergs as we entered the pack ice. As the sun slowly dropped in the sky I expect extend it hide behind the clouds... I was wrong, very wrong. The sun refused to hide and at this latitude it takes for ever to set. For almost 2 hours, as the ship broke through ice, we were gifted the most amazing sunset I have ever experienced. PS: the little black dots by the lead in the ice are Adelie Penguins #antarctica#PhotographersForAntarctica#wild#wilderness#sunset#landscapephotography#naturephotography
The is no end to the spectacular scenery in Antarctica, here we are near the entrance to the Lemaire Channel which was discovered by Dallmann’s German expedition of 1873 but Gerlache was the first to navigate the channel in 1898 and named it in honour of Charles Lemaire, a Belgian explorer of the Congo.
A little #tbt action today. Here was my first Instagram post a couple months ago. Posting at 1am in the morning doesn't really get much attention :) ----------------------
So what should I post for my 1st Instagram entry?? Let’s reminisce back to January 2013…my greatest adventure to date…Antarctica!! This place is Alaska on steroids! Travelled there on the ship National Geographic Explorer. Came away with such great memories. This was definitely at the top of my bucket list of places to visit..unfortunately will probably never make it back there...$$$$! Thankfully I documented everything and came away with some pretty amazing photos. Not quite @paulnicklen caliber, but hoping to get there!
