Antarctica #8 - More Landscapes and Icescapes In Antarctica

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by bobhoge, May 13, 2005.

  1. A big iceberg with the "spotlight" on it:
    13737843-M.

    This ice arch was at least 50 feet from the water. It looked very unstable:
    13740151-M.
    Note I messed with this photo a long time to try to get rid of the purple. Another photographer posted his shots from film and they were also purple. I guess it really was purple!

    Sunset in the ice south of Petermann Island:
    13738218-M.

    Strange ice formations came in small sizes (note the edge of the zodiac):
    13738331-M.
    And LARGE sizes (maybe 30 to 40 foot columns):
    13738616-M.
    To SUPER SIZE (the little black spot in the lower right corner of the berg is a 10' Leopard Seal:
    13738636-M.

    A sunset, with a nice green flash if you were there:
    13739794-M.

    Aaaah. This (plus Iceland) is one of the places I have dreamed of visiting for ever. All outstanding images, but the sunset is my fave. Please share a few more when you've time.

    Cheers
