We’ve been on the Ocean Diamond for 3 days now, and this morning we hit land in Antarctica after a beautiful time navigating the Lemaire Channel. In a few hours we’ll land again, this time at Circumcision Bay on Peterman Island. The weather has been astonishing, though it made the Drake Passage such a tame journey it barely feels we’ve earned the incredible vistas. Still, there are 6 of us and we’ve had an amazing time so far. The hard drives fill up in the evenings while we sit with a drink, and this morning’s zodiac ride found us a piece of crystal clear ice, likely thousands of years old, from which we made spectacular martinis. Hey, it’s not all work, work, work down here.
I edited this with a quick white point and black point adjustment in Lightroom 4, then used one of the presets from my personal LR4 preset collection, the Midtone Lift + Vignette + Clarity preset.
David, that frame is jaw-dropping. I’m envious of your Antarctica experience.
Simply Awesome.Thank you so much for sharing.Take care.
AMAZING!!!! Now, i’m really jealous 🙂 hehe
Beautiful image David. Cold place… brrrrr
One question… that sky is also treated in LR? or did you use a filter on camera?
Take care and enjoy!
I really had to study this image to work out how it reads. It’s magic!
beauty beyond words… not just the image, but the total experience…
I hope you have an amazing time down south. I love your image, I just spend five minutes exploring the lines and elements. Your work is phenomenal. Looking forward to the next postcard!
Best regards, Johannes
Would you mind sharing the specs on that pic? It almost looks as if you used a T/S lens. The reflections at both ends of the earth are so awe-inspiring.

Aged scotch, it pales in comparison to 10,000 year-old ice cubes.
Sweet! Wish I was there with you!
Awesome! Where there is a will there is a way, at least that’s what I hear. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful image. Makes me look forward to the day when I make the journey south 🙂
