Photo Overload of the White Continent

If Antarctica were music it would be Mozart. Art, and it would be Michelangelo. Literature, and it would be Shakespeare. And yet it is something even greater; the only place on earth that is still as it should be. May we never tame it.

The only sunset I saw while in Antarctica.  It was after 11PM at night.  The sun came up around 3AM!

I was very surprised to see this relatively small boat out in the Gaylor Strait.  The waters were VERY calm on this day and in this area than in others that I will discuss later.

Very foggy most of the time.  Added to the beauty I thought.

Mad penguin
I thought this penguin looked mad.  Maybe someone stole his fish?

It was not easy for me to capture photos of the seals in Antarctica.  I have some better ones from our stop in Montevideo, Uruguay.  It was wonderful seeing them in their natural habitat though!

Chumback
Above is the best photo that I was able to get of a Humpback Whale in Antarctica.  We saw a lot of them, but it was NOT easy to capture a great photo of them!

I will end with a photo of an eskimo (yours truly actually)

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please let me know if you ever have any questions since I'm always lacking in the description department.  I will try to answer them.  Take care everyone!
