Desktop Wallpapers – Antarctica

I know, it’s been a while. I hope it’s worth the wait. I stopped putting these out there because I felt I was on the edge of giving you stuff that’s already had so much exposure, or worse, of giving you photographs I wasn’t 100% happy with. Thanks for the patience. I shot these in Antarctica this month. Clicking the images will take you to 2560 x1440 images, a slightly wider aspect ratio now that the trends are favouring wider cinematic formats. I shot the second only a few feet from my bivouac site, where I spent a very short, cold, hard night sleeping under Antarctic skies.

    Hi, i’m Parkgoon in South Korea.
    I’ve been reading your book titled “within the frame”.
    Actually, I got amazed by your so-called visions and attitude regarding taking photos.
    It’s like I’m into your works.
    Thank you for your good advice.

    Thanks for sharing David! I actually still have the iceberg from last year on my big monitor – still not tired of seeing it every day :-) But the first one above just might replace it now. Wonderfull image! Thanks again.
