For the second year, here is the Casey Station resupply timelapse, in Antarctica.

Here are a few of the latest posts:
📷🐘 Elephant Seals. Browning Peninsula, Antarctica. I found these guys again this year down at their landing spot on the coast. They hang on the rocks all day and sleep, looking so relaxed. They only move to reshuffle and occasionally yawn like in this image. Such gentle giants on land. Probably killers in the water. #aad #antarctica #antarctic #adventure #earth #explore #expedition #exploration #travel #photography #photo #life #nature #wildlifephotography #world #wildlife #seal #elephantseal #globalwarming #climatechange #canon @canonaustralia @bestintravel @lonelyplanet @natgeotravel @natgeo #canonaustralia
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.
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.
It’s happening again. I’ve made the trip down to Casey Station for another summer in Antarctica.
We flew down a few days ago on a government Airbus A319. From Hobart to Wilkins Aerodrome, 70 kms from Casey. Inside, it’s not your usual commercial airplane. Some seats are missing for more moving around room, the cockpit is open and you can go hang out with the pilots and 40 minutes from landing on the ice we put on our full survival gear ready to step out into -15c degree temperatures.
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.
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. Some sea ice accumulated near the rocks. The ice/snow on the foreshore is undercut by the water movement. A small iceburg floating around the bay.
