Photographer's Note

Another shot from my 2008/2009 trip to Antarctica: this is a common landscape in Antarctic Peninsula, with high mountains covered by ice and snow, dark water and low clouds. When you are on the ship, expedition team normally announce the best sights, so... If you are dining, or enjoyng a cup of tea in a warm lounge, forget everything, wear your scarf, gloves, coat etc etc and run outside! It's worth it!
In my opinion, this picture gives a good idea of the main sensation you feel when you see Antarctica for the first time: it seems to be on holiday on the mountains and at sea at the same time!
