Gone to See Antarctica 2014/2015. Hurtigruten Christmas Voyage on the MS Fram. Day 17: Antarctic Peninsula.
We woke on New Years day to see more amazing icebergs. The first stop was at Brown Station (Estación Científica Almirante Brown) in Paradise Harbor. I took a panorama of the harbor and research station from the deck of the MS Fram while waiting to go ashore. Then to Bransfield House (location of the southernmost post office) at Port Lockry. The Gentoo Penguin eggs were just beginning to hatch. Later in the day we proceeded to the Lemaire Channel in the Southwest Antarctic Peninsula. The blue colors of the water, glaciers, and sky were unreal. I did my best to accurately record the colors. All of the panorama images need to be viewed in full screen mode.
