On my past trips to South Georgia, Prion Island has been closed to visitors due to the fur seal activity. But, during our October visit, the island is open to visitors and I was finally able to see these huge, magnificent birds up close! This one will be fledgling soon.
I have to post a penguin photo today – it is penguin awareness day! This was from my fall trip to South Georgia.
Aside from some blue in the iceberg, this scene contained little color to begin with, so I decided to convert it to a black and white, something I normally never do. It was a fun process, brings back memories from the time spent developing and printing images in a black and white lab.
King penguins from a beautiful morning at St. Andrews, South Georgia.
Pre-sunrise light at St Andrews. Our sunrise landing at this amazing location was a highlight of the trip, and well worth the 3:00 a.m. alarm.
It is really nice to be back home, but I am missing these awesome guys!
Back in Argentina after a wonderful trip on the Southern Ocean!
Heading South – way South! Leave in a couple of hours (Monday) to begin the long journey to Antarctica. South Georgia to be specific. It might be quite here in the meantime. Can I bring anyone home a penguin?
