Do you know what one of my worst nightmares was in Antarctica? Well, you are in the most beautiful area in the world, the light is great and you see terrific photo opportunities..... passing by! You are on a ship that sails and does not stop for you to get a shore, set up your tripod in order to make the " perfect" composition. You do not have the time or the possibilities to make long exposures, etc. You just have to take pictures handheld (yikes :-) ). So we did :-)

But, i was so happy that the ship stopped at the end of the Lemaire Channel in very nice bay. The ships engine kept roaring, but at least we had the opportunity to make some (handheld again) images and make the most of it.

Anyway, this is one images i could create around midnight. It's a panorama of 5 portrait orientated images stitched together in Photoshop.
