I thought I would share an older image that I haven’t had a chance to adjust until this morning – it will be hard to ever beat this New Year’s Eve!
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!
