During my time down at Casey Station in Antarctica this season, i got to go out on a ‘burg cruise’ in the IRB’s. A trip on the boats to drive around some of the giants in the southern ocean. These iceburgs are huge from a distance and massive up close. They are big on top of the water and monsters under the surface. Some are grounded and dont move for years. Others float back and forth daily. Overall it was such a amazing experience i will never forget.
Here are some photos i got from my GoPro camera half underwater trying to show the size of them. The last is from the Canon showing what it looks like on top. Remember 10% on top 90% underneath.
This iceburg in the background is the one we called the ‘Cathedral’ and the one all these underwater shots are of.
I have so many photos of Adélie Penguins it’s becoming a problem. I don’t have enough time to go through the Gigabites of photo files of these guys. They are comical on land, majestic in the water and sometimes fly through the air.
And yet, i can’t get enough of them.
Here are some photos of the Adélie Penguins, one photo of a Skua right after taking a Penguin egg and one of the egg after the meal.
