Humpbacks and Icebergs

Humpback Whale and Icebergs

There is nothing better than being amongst some amazing icebergs and have a whale sighting.  For this image we were cruising in the iceberg graveyard when a humpback surfaces and the image was made even better by the iceberg background.  This is what visiting the Antarctica region is all about.

Sunset, Oh Yeah

Sunset, Iceberg Graveyard, Antarctica

Sunset, Iceberg Graveyard, Antarctica

Ok, it’s a sunset.  But, it’s a cool sunset.  Antarctica has lovely sunsets.  They last a long time and have amazing color.  This was one shot from the ship after we finished an amazing zodiac cruise through the Iceberg Graveyard.  A great way to end what had been a 20 hour day of photography.

The Best Rust

Rusty Bolt, Deception Island, Antarctica

Rusty Bolt, Deception Island, Antarctica

I am a rust addict.  Ok, I have come clean.  There is some attraction to rust that makes e seek it our.  Rust has its own story.  It is the decay of something that was.  I find rust everywhere and love the texture and colors.  It’s almost like an abstract.  The best rust is in Antarctica and this trip I did a lot of rust shots on Deception Island.  You’ll see more posted here.  You can always use the tag on the right and click on rust to see all the rusty pictures.

Sunrise In The Lemaire Channel

The Lemaire Channel At Sunrise, Antarctica

The Lemaire Channel At Sunrise, Antarctica

One of the essential places to visit in Antarctica is the Lemaire channel.  This is passage that takes about an hour through a narrows and it is just spectacular especially at dawn or sunset.  This was a beautiful start to what turned into a 20 hour day of photography on my recent trip to Antarctica.

Whale Oil Tanks

Whale Oil Tanks, Deception Island, Antarctica

Whale Oil Tanks, Deception Island, Antarctica

Rust is a favorite subject of mine and I am always surprised at how much rust I find in Antarctica.  These are whale oil tanks on Deception Island.   This place is an abandoned and kind of surreal place.  It’s an old whale processing plant from a hundred years ago.  They slaughtered thousand of whales here without any regard.  When you walk the beach there and then see images of the beach back then littered with whale bones it kind of creeps you out.  Thus I shot this image to illicit some mood and tone for what used to take place there.

Beautiful Light

Seal On Ice, Antarctica

Seal On Ice, Antarctica

Having just returned home from Antarctica I am now busy editing and working on over 7000 images made during the trip.  This was one I liked a lot so far.  Seal On Ice.  As we were zodiac cruising the Planeau Bay where there are a ton if icebergs we came across this seal and just happened to have amazing light.

In My Element

While on my recent trip to Antarctica I was given a chance to do something I have wanted to do for years and that was to drive a Zodiac in Antarctica.  This was a dream come true and a very wise move by our expedition leader who knew it would keep me quiet the rest of the trip.  This was very cool.  Happiness doesn’t do the feeling justice.

Back From Antarctica Again

I am now back in Chile after experiencing a totally awesome adventure with some totally great folks on The Luminous-Landscape Fly Over The Drake Antarctica Photography Workshop.  The weather was absolutely great for the whole trip and the amount of images I have returned with are staggering. We experienced whales, seals, penguins and the most beautiful landscapes imaginable.  Over the coming days I’ll be posting more images here and on f=Facebook pif this great trip.

One End To The Other

Lemaire Channel from one end to the other, stitched pano

On the recent Antarctica Trip we were the first boat of the season to cruise through the Lemaire channel.  Tis in one of the most gorgeous places you can visit.  We did it at sunrise.  This image is a 9 image stitch made into a pano from a moving ship handheld.  It shows one shore line as well as both opening of the channel.  Made with a Nikon d800e it enlarges to be a spectacular image.
