Yesterday we continued our way through the channels and islands to the west of the Antarctic Peninsula aiming to have a couple of landings throughout the day, grab dinner around 7pm and then head out to Ronge Island to spend the night camping out on the glacier.

The weather since we’ve arrived has been nothing but blue skies and sunshine and while this is nice from a temperature point of view, I would have liked to see a few more threatening clouds over the horizon to be able to shoot more moody photographs. It didn’t happen so far so I went for the long exposures to create some movement in the sky and the only way to achieve this was by using ND filters, while on solid ground.

This is probably my favourite image so far as I think it summarises very well the feeling of being so far away from everything on a remote beach with nothing but penguins crossing your way. As always, I would love to hear what you think of it.
