PEI Lightning

Mother Nature put on a bit of a show for us last evening as the sun was going down.

A Canadian Icon

Spending a few days in eastern Canada and I could not resist heading to a very iconic Canadian place…Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia! I have been here a few times over the years and I have usually shot the typical image at sunset with the lighthouse in the image. This time around I decided to try something different, and I scouted out a location across a small inlet with the lighthouse to the east. I love the softness of the light.

Adventuring in the Antarctica

Waterfall Berg

The icebergs in the Antarctica were so fascinating in many ways. This one would shift constantly, causing waves and the water to flow up onto it, and then back off like a waterfall.

Sniff…sniff

“I freaking told you I used deodorant today!!”
 
Fur Seals – Deception Island – Antarctica
 
A few facts about this area. It is one of the safest harbours in the Antarctica. The island is also a caldera of an active volcano. The last time the volcano erupted was the late 60’s, early 70’s. It destroyed a couple of scientific stations there. It is administered under the Antarctic Treaty System.

Incredible Bergs

Icebergs in the Antarctica are truly amazing. Some so big they boggle the mind. Others, sometimes smaller than 5 metres are known as Bergy Bits or Growlers. The big guys, with mostly flat tops are Tabular. The largest iceberg on record was sighted in 1959 and was over 31,00 sq, Km., or bigger than Belgium. Only about 10% of an iceberg is above the surface of the water. The blue color usually means the ice is much older.

Simply Breathtaking!

Back in Ushuaia, Argentina! To be honest, I have no words to describe our adventure to the Antarctic. I could use words like, “Amazing”, “Incredible”, “Wonderful” and so on, but I don’t believe they do this place justice. It is simply breathtaking. A fragile, pristine place full of wonderful wildlife, landscapes and incredible beauty. A place I won’t soon forget. A place that needs to be protected in every way. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing many images from Antarctica. It s my hope that as you view these images, you will not only be as amazed as I was but that you will add your voice to mine as I reach out to the world community to protect this place. Global warming, much of it caused by humans, is having an impact on the Antarctica, like no where else. Some of the effects have not been seen yet but are present. It is already causing problems with the food sources for many of the wildlife in the Antarctica. As a photographer, I believe I can make my voice heard through images and words and help people to understand how important it is to protect the Antarctica.

For now, here is the tail of a beautiful Humpback Whale.
