After spending time in the Arctic, I knew I had to see for myself what the Antarctic was all about. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to visit over the last two weeks traveling along the Antarctic Peninsula and south of the Polar Circle. We called the Ocean Nova vessel home for this trip. Now I fear I want to go back! One trip did not provide enough time to absorb the vast and massive landscape and fully digest it all, if that’s even possible. While similar elements to the Arctic, the two are quite different. Below are a handful of initial images that I have connected with. These images are primarily of ice, only one element of Antarctica. If I should be so fortunate to return again, I will focus on the other elements to explain it more completely. Thank you to John Paul Caponigro, Seth Resnick, and the Expedition team at Antarctica XXI for making it possible. We had a wonderful group of photographers as well and I feel privileged to have been able to work with them and learn from them.
