Iceburgs in Antarctica.

Monsters of the Deep.

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.

Adélie Penguins in Antarctica.

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.rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin8_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin7_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin6_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin5_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin4_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin3_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin2_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin1_jan15_webres rgatfield_eightythreephoto_penguin_jan15_webres

Chief Street Halloween Jam 2014

Adelaide had a reason to be afraid yet again this Halloween. This years pre City Dirt Jam was my first time going, and it was pretty much all the hype i’d heard and more. Much more. There was a few crazy things done on the bikes and everyone got a good ride in before the rain came after dark. That didn’t stop the party as everyone there had come in a Halloween spirit.

I’ll let the photographs do the talking…

Antarctica with a Leica M6

I have a few black and white photos taken at Casey Station, Antarctica last summer. All taken down near the wharf. All with my Leica M6, Voigtlander 35mm lens and Kodak Tri-X film. Straight off the scanner.

 

rgatfield_antarctica_leicaM6_summer1314_webres3 When you’re near the water taking photos or doing anything really, the penguins come from all over to visit you, see what your up too, hang for a while, then leave. This one came from the ocean and left, seen here on his way back for a swim.rgatfield_antarctica_leicaM6_summer1314_webres4  Some sea ice accumulated near the rocks. rgatfield_antarctica_leicaM6_summer1314_webres2 The ice/snow on the foreshore is undercut by the water movement. rgatfield_antarctica_leicaM6_summer1314_webresA small iceburg floating around the bay.

Brad Mas had his bike, i had my camera. This is the result of a little photo session down at St Kilda Skatepark on a sunny afternoon.
