2012 started with a 6 week trip to Antarctica. Flying all the way to New Zealand and from there to the Ross Sea by boat. Seen a lot of animals and beautiful landscapes, from which a few will soon making a way to the recent gallery on the site.
Sailing for 8 days from the sub Antarctic islands to reach all the way up to American Mac Murdo station far in the Ross Sea. We had to break to the pack ice to reach up here to find out there was so much ice forming that we could not reach land. Luckily we reached several other places to make landings on this great continent.
The image I want to share with you is one of the special moments a person can have with animals. At the most Southerly point that we reached we made a walk on the pack ice. From out of nowhere those two Adélie Penguins came walking towards us. The light on this moment was terrific, so I lied down on the ice. The two Penguins where so interested what was lying there, that they walked up all the way to let me make a image with a wide angle. This way all the empty and salutary environment came out.
The wide angle was a 24-70, 1/1000, f16, iso 640.
