I was home for such a short period of time, I haven’t had a chance to share very many images from South Georgia, or even the experience I had here at Right Whale Bay that was one of the more memorable wildlife experiences I have ever witnessed.  But, more on that tomorrow.

Back in Argentina after a great trip to South Georgia and the Falklands.  Lots to share, but first need to make the long trip home.

We are off for penguins!

We are leaving today to head back to South Georgia, and this time Janine get to join me!  I believe this is my 7th trip to the Southern Ocean, and third in 12 months, but it may also be my last, so I hope to make the best of it.

I won’t be posting anything for the next month as I won’t really have any internet.  I’m also going to turn comments off here to avoid the onslaught of spam.  See you in a month!

This is just a portion of a huge iceberg from last March – it was loaded with arches, the most amazing iceberg I have ever seen!

Scott and I took turns driving our Zodiacs in front of the massive iceberg arch  for each other to help provide some scale.  Telephoto compression makes him look closer then he really is, but it sure was an impressive sight!
