Antarctica - 2008 : This gallery is the Antarctica segment of a fantastic 37 day cruise aboard the Marco Polo in which we visited Antarctica, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and the Falkland Islands. The beauty of Antarctica is unsurpassed and definitely should be a must on any traveler's list.

Paradise Bay - Petzval Glacier : We cruised Paradise Bay by Zodiac, on a serene, bright, sunny day.  The water was often glassy.  There would be many levels juxtaposed - the sky, the icebergs, ice floating on the water, the reflections of the bergs, and the bottom of the bergs through the crystal water.

I was VERY glad to have a 10mm. lens.

Melchior Islands : Magnificent humpback whales.  They were indifferent towards us, allowing us to get as close as we liked but moving around fairly quickly.  When they sound, they lift their tail fluke in the air.

Neko Harbor Kayaking : Kayaking in the snow, through pack ice and icebergs.  So quiet that we could hear the snow fall, except for the distant thunder when an iceberg would calve off of the glacier.  I felt like a truly aquatic creature, in a timeless world.  I wanna go back and do it again!

Petermann Island Kayaking : Kayaking in the snow, among fanciful icebergs.  As you can see, the light is like nothing I'd ever seen before.

Lemaire Channel : This channel is famously scenic, but it was very foggy.  At first, I was dissapointed, but really the light was very beautiful.  Almost monochromatic, but with the glowing blue in the bottome of the floating bergs.
