I'm a bit jealous... Great photos, Anthony and thanks for showing us. I look forward to seeing more.

Stepping back in time:

- dawn over Brazil on the flight form London to Santiago de Chile.
- iPhone shot of the plane which took us from Punta Arenas to King George Island, where we joined the Hans Hansson.

+1 for being jealous. Nice photos as well, particularly the second one. Such a small boat as well in such a vast place.

Not so cute penguin chicks.

 

The first is a Gentoo, the others are Adelies.

We spent several hours moving slowly through the brash ice (loose floating pieces of ice) of the Lemaire Channel. There were many opportunities for photographers and our painter.
