Last year on my Antarctica visit I shot a lot of images as I usually do and when I came home I decided to try something new. I have been making a series of BW images from this amazing place. Here is the first of a week of Antarctica in BW.
There is one channel that is narrow and a favorite place to travel through on visits to Antarctica. I have been through this passage a dizen or more time and each time it offers something unique. This is a sunrise passage on a beautiful calm day. The picture says it all.
I love what I do just in case you haven’t figured that out. I love adventure and the surprises each day brings. Like in this image made in Antarctica. There is something about being on the bridge of a ship when a Russian Captain smiles as he rams his ship onto an ice shelf and parks it there. It’s even more fun to watch him back the ship off the ice shelf. Every trip and every day on an Antarctica adventure has a special memory.
This is another of the moonrise from Antarctica. Yet this one os a tighter shot with a 600mm lens and then I did some special work on it. It turned out quite dramatic.
Ok, there are going to be a lot of iceberg images over the coming weeks, many of them in Black and White. This is a shot of two icebergs and I like the way they formed the composition. The gray sky and the blue of the bergs works well together.
Well we had a great moonrise the night before. We started to transit the Lemaire Channel and the moon was setting. It was an a amazing trip through the channel.
This year like all years when I visit Antarctica there are special defining moments. The defining moment this year was getting married on a beach with penguins and 60 close friends. Quite an adventure. This moonrise was another define moment. And, like a lot of images you’ll see this year I am doing lot of B&W. This is moonrise #12 of a lot of moonrise shots. It was quite a moment to see this moon rise at the same time the sun was setting. Quite a night. Shot with a Sony A7 II and Tamron 150-600mm zoom.
