Pictures from Antarctica

January 15, 2010

Antarctica is beautiful and pristine — which also means the internet is rather sketchy and hence the reason it has been rather difficult to post. Here are a few picutres we have taken.

Picture taken from our zodiac. The ship is surrounded by ice bergs. We had to travel 2 miles by zodiac to reach Devil Island


Thousands of penguins taking in the view of the ice field


Two Penguins singing to each other


Penguin investigating Mary Cate


Beautiful blue iceberg -- about the size of the ship


Devil Island's Summit -- about 850 feet above our ship
