Gone to See Antarctica 2014/2015. Hurtigruten Christmas Voyage on the MS Fram. Day 17: Antarctic Peninsula.
Zodiac Leading an Antarctic Cruise Ship Through the Lemaire Channel. I had never seen clouds this color blue before, and they were that color blue. I am guessing it is blue light reflecting off the glacier. Image taken with a Leica T camera and 18-56 mm lens (ISO 100, 31 mm, f/11, 1/40 sec). Image processed with Capture One Pro 8, Focus Magic, and Photoshop CC.

The B&W conversion was done in Capture One Pro.
Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 6: Hosteria El Pilar, El Chalten, Laguna Torre, Parque Nacional Los Glaciaries.
On the previous day we drove from Hosteria Helsingfors to Hosteria El Pilar near the town of El Chalten. We stayed at this location for a couple of days. Early in the morning (before sunrise) we were rewarded with a magnificent view of Mount Fitzroy from right outside the hosteria. You need to view this panorama in full-screen mode. After picking up our guide in El Chalten, we hiked to Laguna Torre in Parque Nacional Los Glaciaries (Glacier National Park). During the hike we saw a female Magellanic Woodpecker. Once at Laguna Torre there was an impressive view of the Torre massif, the Adela range, Mount Solo and their respective glaciers.
Gone to See Antarctica 2014/2015. Hurtigruten Christmas Voyage on the MS Fram. Day 10: Grytviken, South Georgia.
As we departed the abandoned whaling village Grytviken on South Georgia passed the HMS Dragon (D35) at anchor just outside the harbor. There were a lot of big lenses from the Chinese tourists taking pictures of the British Destroyer. I was able to get an in-camera panorama view of the departure with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 23 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 200, 23 mm, f/16, 1/125 sec).
