I know that everyone wants photos of penguins, but I thought that I’d drag out the process a little bit on this one. Instead, here is a photo essay of Ice. Yes, you heard that right. Sometimes inspiration in photography is drawn from subjects you might not expect, but the ice in Antarctica shows an amazing character. Each iceberg, each glacier, and each floating sheet shows a different journey towards creation. Like a finger print each piece of ice is different to the others as the powerful ocean carefully carves each and every section. And like a child who sees shapes in the clouds, visitors to the Antarctic can’t help but spot ducks, whales, and cars in the ice.
Everyone has a different favourite, which one is your favourite?
Who Goes to Antarctica?
I went to Antarctica with the good people at Peregrine Adventures. If you’re thinking about visiting Antarctica, or anywhere for that matter, you should check out Peregrine Adventures.
This was the first of a series of photo essays here on my site. Coming up will be a lot of wildlife photos which will start to round out the series on Antarctica. Over at the Peregrine Blog I have posted an article called “The Wonder of the Seventh Continent”
