In 2010, I traveled with a group of photographers to the Antarctic Peninsula, leaving from the port of Ushuaia in Argentina, and crossing the Drake Passage for 2+ days at the beginning and end of the trip. The Drake crossing was as rough as you would expect from the intersection of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, with 40+ foot waves and fierce winds on the return trip. But the time in Antarctica made it all worthwhile! We visited a small part of a vast continent. It is a pristine, snow-covered world of mountains, ocean and ice, penguins and seals. These images -- focused largely on the snow and ice -- are from that trip. Some are in color, to highlight the blue hues of the icebergs and the crystal clear waters; some are in black & white, to accent the drama, and the vastness, of Antarctica.
Fine art prints, in various sizes and surfaces, are available for all of the images in this gallery. Simply click on images to view, and options to order can be found below each photograph. Thanks.
