2014 Antarctica Photo Expedition

Antarctica Photo ExepeditionI just returned to Alaska from guiding an amazing photo expedition to Antarctica with six wonderful guests. We had a phenomenal time! These images are some impressions from the trip, which also explains why there haven’t been any posts in the month of January.  If you are interested in joining me in 2015, please check out the expedition website for more information. Above, our yacht glides through Paradise Harbor along the Antarctic Peninsula.

This was our first landing after four days at sea.

Iceberg Antarctic Peninsula - Photo (c) Laurent Dick - www.sailantarctica.comI love ice, especially big icebergs! What’s interesting here though is the green at the base of the iceberg. It’s chlorophyll, a pigment in various types of phytoplankton, a tiny algae which is consumed by zooplankton, krill, fish and shrimp larvae.
